Meritor launches instructor-led training courses

July 17, 2012

Meritor has launched a series of new instructor-led training (ILT) courses. The courses are in addition to more than 100 online courses currently available through Meritor BullPen.

The new courses offer in-depth and hands-on classes on a diverse range of products and services offered by Meritor.

These in-person training courses are offered at the Meritor Tech Training Center in Troy, MI, and led by the Meritor DriveForce Training Group. Attendees will receive up-to-date product information and personalized attention from industry experts, who collectively have an average of more than a quarter century of industry and product experience.

Each three-day course will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Upcoming topics include:

  • Rear-drive axle and front non-drive steer axle
  • Foundation brakes – vehicle dynamics and controls
  • Trailer products

“Personalized training sessions are a necessity for effectively educating our customers about the critical technical features of our products,” said Matthew Stevenson, general manager DriveForce & marketing. “These detailed courses are a great tool for dealers, fleets and technicians interested in Meritor products and the benefits they provide to fleets.” 

The courses provide a mixture of product basics and hands-on skills training that covers component identification, system operation, preventative maintenance, disassembly, assembly, adjustments, diagnostics and parts failure analysis related to specific products in each course.

Meritor’s DriveForce team is the company’s North American sales and service organization. The company also has the OnTrac technical support center, collectively staffed by more than 150 professionals, to assist commercial vehicle customers with customized solutions before, during and after the sale.
