ELYRIA, Ohio — Bendix has included a Canadian date on its 2006 air brake training class schedule.

The Air Brake Training School curriculum covers the fundamentals of compressed air as well as air system failure mode diagnosis tactics and troubleshooting. The Canadian dates for the three-day course are Oct. 24-26 in Montreal, Que.

The program involved the training of more than 6,000 people last year and included more than 30,000 student hours. Bendix has added a Foundation Brake Training School this year, but there are currently no Canadian dates scheduled.

The three-day hands-oin air brake training course will be offered 23 times this year throughout the U.S. and in Montreal.

“We offer the Air Brake, and now the Foundation Brake Training Schools each year to keep attendees apprised of the latest technical information regarding the operation and service of the air brake and foundation brake systems,” said John Reid, Service Warranty and Training (SWAT) team manager. “By providing this training to help technicians efficiently and effectively maintain and repair the systems, we are helping fleets and owner-operators decrease their down time and service costs.”
