Dana Incorporated announced the expansion of its training academy, which will now include two new modules covering component identification, maintenance, and lubrication for Spicer drive axles.
The new modules demonstrate Dana’s commitment to furthering component knowledge, functionality, and maintenance for both new and experienced technicians.
