Both new and experienced technicians can soon gain cost-saving expertise from the new, all-inclusive Brake Training School offered by Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC.

The Bendix Brake Training School combines the former Bendix Air Brake and Foundation Brake Training schools into one complete course. It allows maintenance professionals to learn about description, operation, and service elements for all components found within dual air brake systems.

Participants will learn from a curriculum that includes: the fundamentals of compressed air; tactics for air system failure mode diagnosis and troubleshooting; and air brake system and foundation brake components. These include air compressors, valves, foundation drum brake and air disc brakes, slack adjusters, brake chambers, shoes, and drums.

Additional topics covered include antilock braking systems (ABS) and stability technologies such as the Bendix ESP Electronic Stability Program. Class exercises with hands-on activities are provided, and participants receive a workbook enabling them to take lessons home.

The 2008 Bendix Brake Training School will kick off March 11 in Springdale AZ. The course will be offered in nearly 20 cities across the United States. For a full listing of locations and dates, visit

Class size is limited; enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration may be done at or, by phone (800-AIR-BRAKE, option 5), or via fax (216-651-3261).
