ELYRIA, Ohio — Bendix will be offering its comprehensive 2012 Brake Training School three times this year in Canada.

The program, which covers descriptions, operation and service elements of a full range of components found within the foundation and air brake systems, will visit St. Catharines, Ont. Apr. 24-26 and Oct. 23-25 as well as Anjou, Que. June 12-14.

The program will also be offered throughout the US over the course of the year, Bendix announced.

Other topics covered as part of the program include air disc brakes, anti-lock braking systems, tire pressure monitoring systems and stability technologies. Bendix says it began offering its training schools more than 50 years ago, making it one of the longest-running training programs in the industry. More than 250,000 people have completed the program over the past 10 years.

“Bendix Brake Training School enables technicians to maintain and improve their knowledge of braking systems, allowing fleets and owner-operators to reduce downtime and service costs,” said John Reid, Bendix SWAT team manager and a company veteran of more than 40 years. “Bendix offers the course to keep attendees apprised of the latest technical information regarding the operation and service of air brake and foundation brake systems. Bendix Brake Training School provides the foundation of knowledge to help keep commercial vehicles on the road in good working condition, while ensuring highway safety for drivers and others on the roadway. This knowledge is as critical as ever in the era of CSA – Compliance, Safety, and Accountability – the new federal safety and compliance model for commercial vehicles.”
