Source: Bendix announcement

ELYRIA, Ohio – As real-world business conditions drive demand for online training options, distance learning is an increasingly vital tool for keeping North America’s fleets and truck drivers rolling safely – and for seven years, the Bendix On-Line Brake School has continually expanded and evolved to serve the entire trucking industry.

This spring, Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC surpassed more than 100,000 registered users of brake-school.com, which provides easy and convenient access to nearly 90 training courses, as well as customized educational plans for fleets and industry organizations.

“Even as in-person training sessions and events have understandably been postponed or rescheduled industrywide, knowledge sharing and access to in-depth, up-to-date technical information remain crucial components of fleet, vehicle, and highway safety,” said Barbara Gould, Bendix director of corporate communications. “Reaching drivers, technicians, distributors, fleet personnel, owner-operators, and anyone in the trucking industry with free expert training when it fits their schedule – that’s been the purpose of brake-school.com since day one.

“We’re grateful for everyone who’s turned to the Bendix experts as a resource, and we’ll keep working to support their efforts toward safer highways and vehicles.”

Through free registration at brake-school.com, students can access a curriculum covering the full spectrum of braking and active vehicle safety system product topics, all developed by the team at Bendix.
