Hendrickson slates next suspension-training sessions

Oct. 17, 2014

Hendrickson has announced that the Hendrickson Vehicle Suspension Institute (HVSI) has scheduled its next hands-on technical suspension training for the heavy-duty transportation industry.

Two separate sessions will be held from November 18 through November 20 in Bangor at the Eastern Maine Community College (EMCC). Each session includes classroom and hands-on training conducted by Hendrickson’s regional field service managers. Topics covered will include both truck and trailer suspension systems.

The truck session will include HAULMAAX, PRIMAAX EX, and front steer axles while the trailer session will include VANTRAAX, trailer axle wheel-ends and brakes as well as Hendrickson’s TIREMAAX PRO tire-inflation system.

Hendrickson said the HVSI program provides technicians as well as parts and service personnel with a basic orientation and hands-on experience for the recommended installation, service, maintenance, and repair procedures for all Hendrickson suspension systems.

The company noted that hundreds of technicians from independent repair facilities, fleets, OE service dealerships and parts distributors have participated in the past sessions.

“HVSI has proven to be a popular and effective hands-on and classroom technical training program,” said David McCleave, marketing & aftermarket director for Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems. “Participants get to interact with our trainers and obtain the ability to experience real time repair procedures.

“We want our end users, technicians and parts specialist to have a great experience learning how to maintain our Hendrickson suspension systems,” he added. “HVSI enables that experience.”
