GRIMSBY, Ont. — The Canadian Fleet Maintenance Seminar (CFMS) is returning to the Hilton Suites Toronto/Markham once again May 9-11, featuring an array of panels, events and displays designed for the nation’s fleet maintenance managers.

New content for this year’s event includes a hands-on training session consisting of four segments that will focus on wheel ends, disc brakes, hydraulics, and DPF/SCR maintenance. While the event is geared towards mangers and technicians, organizers have said they hope fleet will consider the sessions as an optional event for their technicians, lead-hands and other shop personnel. While the training session is included in the registration rate, a special event rate has been established to allow the participation of these non-seminar registrants. 

Rounding out the 2011 panel selections will be sessions on new products, tire maintenance, SmartWay technology, hybrid/electrical vehicles, brakes, computer technology, and a medical panel on prostrate cancer.  The seminar will once again close out with its Open Forum panel moderated by Jim Riddle, 2010 Canadian Fleet Manager of the Year.   

Other highlights for 2011 include an expanded trade show, outside truck display and the Volvo Canadian Fleet Manager of the Year Award. Planned evening events include dinner speakers for both Tuesday (Allison Graham – “Build Your Ultimate Network”)  and Wednesday (Terry Evanshen – “The Man Who Lost Himself”) as well as supplier information suites.
