Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems has expanded its curriculum at the Bendix On-Line Brake School. Since opening access to its knowledge database and technical resources in March, Bendix continues to add a wide range of new or updated courses to its curriculum covering all aspects of electronics and air brake maintenance.
The website, www.brake-school.com, features a menu of 5- to 7-minute video segments, as well as a broad range of other training tools on all aspects of electronics and air brake maintenance. New content – generally uploaded bimonthly to ensure the school remains fresh and relevant – includes courses on air compressors, tire pressure monitoring systems, wheel-end maintenance, and radar alignment for active safety systems.
The on-line school – open to registrations from both companies and individuals – currently serves more than 7,000 registered users, with new participants signing up weekly.
The Bendix course material on www.brake-school.com is covered in detailed documents, videos, and other interactive presentation modules, allowing students to review the information at their own pace and on their own schedule. Knowledge checks at the end of each course measure what they’ve learned. The password-protected site offers a variety of access levels, most of which enable companies to track their registered technicians’ and employees’ participation and progress.
