Specific to the Bendix range, the program will teach maintenance professionals about antilock braking systems, brand air disc brakes, their electronic stability program, SmarTire pressure monitoring system, as well as their Collision Mitigation Technology – Bendix Wingman Advanced.

“When fleets and drivers invest in vehicle safety equipment, it helps make the roads safer for everyone,” said Chuck Miller, Bendix manager of field service and training.

The program will utilize tools such as project cutaways, visual aids, and demonstration boards to foster success in the intensive course load. Classroom lectures will address air brake system components such as valves, brake chambers, slack adjusters, drums, shoes, and air compressors. The course encourages hands on learning and close-up system study.

Bendix Service Engineering team has accumulated tons of troubleshooting experience, with over 175 years of commercial vehicle service under their belt.
