Dana has launched the Dana Aftermarket Training Academy as a digital training resource for the commercial vehicle aftermarket. It's a learning management system that helps users better understand the company's products through interactive slideshows and videos based on each individual's needs.
The training modules are composed of short, informative chapters covering fundamentals such as function, design composition, and disassembly and installation basics. Courses are followed by a brief quiz, and a personalized certificate of completion is available for download and printing after successfuly completing a module.
The Dana Aftermarket Training Academy is immediately available at Training.Dana.com with access to the Drive Axle Nomenclature Overview module. The module outlines how to properly identify Dana axle assemblies and complete Dana axle series, as well as a thorough overview of each series' nomenclature with a breakdown on the alphabetic and numeric identification codes. Additional modules will be launched in the coming months, including Drive Axle Component Identification and Failure Analysis, as well as Nomenclature, Theory of Operation, and Failure Analysis for Driveshafts and Steer Axles.
Featuring a mobile-ready, responsive design for optimized performance, the Dana Aftermarket Training Academy is available on any web-enabled device, platform, or browser.
Dana has also upgraded its e-commerce platform DanaAftermarket.com, adding access to the Dana Media Library. This allows users to quickly find brochures and sell sheets to assist with the buying and selling of Dana products. Secure portal users also have access to a wide variety of Dana images, while secure portal off-highway users are granted permission to off-highway service manuals and service parts lists.
The platform is currently available for customers in North America and Europe, with orders fulfilled regionally for timely, efficient product delivery.
