Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC has announced it will begin its 2009 Bendix Brake Training School on Monday, April 6th in Elyria, OH. The curriculum teaches maintenance professionals the description, operation and service elements for Bendix’s foundation and air brake system through classroom lectures and operational demonstrations, the company said.
The course will be offered in nearly 20 cities across the U.S. and Canada. According to Bendix, participants will learn the fundamentals of compressed air; tactics for air system failure mode diagnosis and troubleshooting; and air brake system and foundation brake components.
“Bendix Brake Training School will help technicians maintain and improve their knowledge about braking systems, allowing fleets and owner-operators to decrease downtime and service costs,” said John Reid, Bendix service, warranty, and training (SWAT) team manager. “Bendix Brake Training School is an important element to help keep trucks in good working order and, ultimately, help ensure highway safety for drivers and others on the roadway.”
