Hendrickson announces HVSI suspension training program

Hendrickson Vehicle Suspension Institute (HVSI) scheduled its next session of hands-on technical suspension training for the heavy duty transportation industry.

Two sessions will be held, Sept. 9 and Sept. 10, 2014, in Edmonton, Canada at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT), located in the province of Alberta, Canada. Each full-day session includes classroom and hands-on training. The training is conducted by Hendrickson’s regional field service managers and topics include both truck and trailer suspension systems, trailer axle wheel-ends and brakes.

The HVSI program provides technicians, as well as parts and service personnel, with a basic orientation and hands-on experience for the recommended installation, service, maintenance and repair procedures for all Hendrickson suspension systems. 

Hundreds of technicians from independent repair facilities, fleets, OE service dealerships and parts distributors have participated in the past sessions.

“HVSI uses a hands-on and a classroom training environment as part of the Hendrickson technical training program. Feedback has been extremely positive and the training has proven to benefit participants who are working the challenges every day. Participants get to interact with our trainers and obtain the ability to experience real time repair procedures. We want our end users, technicians and parts specialist to have a great experience with learning about and maintaining our Hendrickson suspension systems. HVSI enables that experience,” said David McCleave, marketing and aftermarket director for Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems.
