Free wheel-end training course available

The heavy duty wheel-end parts manufacturer RevHD has launched a free wheel-end training course on its website that it claims promises to put a new spin on how mechanics are trained and certified on wheel-ends.

Brian Beathard and Matt Stovall, co-owners of RevHD LLC, applied their 20 years of prior wheel-end training experience to build a master course that covers all products and platforms across the industry.

“We didn’t want to make it just about RevHD products. We wanted to train mechanics on the double-nut system, the spacer system, the unitized hubs and other products that exist in the wheel-end industry. Our goal is for participants to walk away feeling like they understand the entire wheel-end, and they’ve received a value for the time invested in taking the course.” says Stovall.

Beathard and Stovall say they decided to make the course available online after industry research showed customers prefer a training platform that doesn’t require them to shut down their shop, or coordinate shift changes and vacation schedules to make sure everyone can attend.

“The beauty of online is the course is always consistent. You can hit rewind if you miss something and, more importantly, it can be taken at the customer’s leisure – either as a group or individually,” Beathard says.

RevHD says all after participants complete the 35 minute online training, there is a quiz to test the knowledge they’ve gained. Successful completion of this quiz earns the participant a certificate demonstrating their level of understanding of various wheel-end systems and their ability to diagnose failures and correct them.

“Many courses out there do not offer a test to prove that any information has actually transferred from the instructor to the student. We wanted to provide quantifiable evidence the information we are providing is being absorbed by the participant.” says Stovall.

“Everything we do is about making the end-users’ job easier and safer,” says Beathard. “This free course is simply an extension of that goal.”

RevHD’s online training course is now available online at www.RevHD.com.  For more information, contact RevHD at 844-REV-SEALs.
