From spring through fall 2018, Bendix will host 24 in-person Bendix Brake Training School sessions. Offered by Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems and Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake, this year’s training school opens Tuesday, March 6, in Memphis, Tennessee. Classes are scheduled into December, with sessions in 18 U.S. states and 20 cities.

Bendix has provided technician education and support for more than a half century, and its training programs are among the longest-running in the industry. The Brake Training School is designed for both new and experienced technicians.

“At Bendix, our dedication to supporting professional technicians – at all skill levels – goes hand-in-hand with our mission to improve highway safety by advancing braking technology and safety systems,” said Lance Hansen, North America regional vice president – fleet/trailer sales and service engineering at Bendix. “Technicians have the vital responsibility of keeping commercial vehicles in good working condition and operating safely. To keep them at the leading edge of today’s rapidly evolving technologies, these men and women must be equipped with the most up-to-date operational and service knowledge available – the Bendix program provides that through our in-depth, hands-on training program.”

The veteran Bendix Service Engineering Team, which conducts the training, represents more than a century of collective years of comprehensive, practical commercial vehicle service and troubleshooting experience. Previously known as the Bendix Service, Warranty and Training (SWAT) team, the Service Engineering Team members are experts on air and foundation brake systems.

During Bendix Brake Training School’s three-day sessions, maintenance professionals learn the description, operation and service of the entire range of foundation and air brake system components.

The comprehensive curriculum provides the only authorized training in Bendix products and services, including:

  • Bendix brand air disc brakes

Other system aspects detailed in the intensive coursework include the fundamentals of compressed air, and tactics for air system failure diagnosis and troubleshooting. Visual aids, product cutaways, and operational demonstration boards enable up-close component study and hands-on learning. Bendix experts also discuss the commercial vehicle regulatory landscape, including federal regulations requiring full-stability technology. The cost of enrollment per person is $350.
