Bendix Rolls Out 2023 Product Training School Schedule
To help fleets, technicians, and owner-operators keep pace with today’s ever-advancing truck technologies, Bendix has doubled its technical training force and enhanced its long-running in-person training programs for 2023. In addition to our long-standing three-day Air Brake Training class that has set the industry training standard for decades, we now offer a two-day Advanced Technology Training program.
Master The Fundamentals
The 2023 edition of our in-person Air Brake Training class is tailored to both new and experienced technicians. It covers the description, operation, and service elements for the total range of components found within dual air brake systems. Topics include:
- Fundamentals of compressed air
- Tactics for air system failure mode diagnosis and troubleshooting
- Air brake system and foundation brake components (air compressors, valves, foundation drum brakes, and air disc brakes)
Advance To The Next Level
The Advanced Technology Training class is an exciting addition to our training curriculum; it picks up where the Air Brake Training course ends, covering the operation and troubleshooting of higher-level driver assistance and safety systems, as well as diagnostic software.
Our Advanced Technology Training is a real must for the advanced technician, covering:
- AutoVue® Lane Departure Warning System from Bendix CVS
- Bendix ACom® diagnostic software
- Bendix® ESP® Electronic Stability Program
- Bendix® Wingman® Advanced™ and Bendix® Wingman® Fusion™ driver assistance systems
- SafetyDirect® by Bendix CVS
- SmarTire® and SmarTire® Trailer-Link™ TPMS by Bendix CVS
Class time in the Advanced Technology Training session includes in-depth, hands-on maintenance for Bendix® air disc brakes and electrical diagnostics.
Expanded Opportunities to Learn
To help address the increasing demand for service training, we’ve doubled our technical training force. In addition, 15 Air Brake Training sessions, including one virtual class – each conducted by a member of the ASE-certified veteran Bendix Service Engineering Team – are scheduled in 11 locations across the U.S. from February to December. The four Advanced Technology Training courses will be held from March to November, split between Sparks, Nevada, and the Bendix headquarters in Avon, Ohio.
Per-person enrollment costs are $475 USD for the Air Brake Training, $425 USD for the Advanced Technology Training, and $375 USD for the Virtual Class. Due to the quantity and complexity of the products covered, we highly recommend that each student completes the Bendix Air Brake Training (three-day) class, or at a minimum, the online brake school at brake-school.com, before taking the Advanced Technology Training class.
