AVON, Ohio – Technical training is more important than ever: Bendix hears this repeatedly in its conversations with fleets across North America. For nearly six decades, the company has made it a priority to understand and deliver on that critical need. Once again, Bendix will bring this deep market insight as it kicks off its 2022 brake school sessions.
Bendix’s training program continues in 2022 with in-person and virtual training opportunities – along with a new testing option for each – for fleet technicians, owner-operators, and others to enhance the skills necessary for keeping vehicles on the road and in safe operating condition.

“From our partners throughout the industry, we understand the need for comprehensive, convenient training – made even more urgent by the technician shortage – and we are committed to helping meet that need,” said Lance Hansen, Bendix vice president – aftermarket sales, fleet, service, and field operations. “These men and women operate in a fast-changing commercial vehicle landscape, where safety components evolve rapidly – and where carriers face intense pressure to maintain overall safety, performance, and uptime while striving to lower their total cost of ownership.”
Training Options, Testing Opportunity
In-person opportunities on the 2022 calendar cover 11 states. They include 12 sessions of Bendix’s three-day Air Brake Training class – long recognized as setting the industry training standard – beginning March 15-17 in Irving, Texas.
And to address market demand, Bendix is expanding availability of its highly attended two-day in-person Advanced Technology Training program, which launched in 2019. The course will be held six times this year, with four sessions at Bendix’s new headquarters in Avon, Ohio – including the first one, March 22-23 – and two at the company’s Sparks, Nevada, location.
In addition, Bendix is holding three Virtual Training sessions of its three-day Air Brake Training class, with the first kicking off March 1-3.
Registration is open for the complete schedule of both courses, shown on the last page of this news release. Every class is conducted by a member of the ASE-certified veteran Bendix Service Engineering Team.
