ITASCA, Ill. — Hendrickson has introduced the Hendrickson Academy, an interactive online education portal that provides video-based maintenance and/or repair procedures for many of Hendrickson’s suspensions and components.

The Hendrickson Academy is available to fleet and service technicians who are not only looking to hone their technical skills but also add to their own professional development.

“Hendrickson’s educational portal is user friendly and is designed with service technicians in mind. Fleets have been asking for online educational tools, and we are happy to be able to provide an educational portal, that works” said Steve Berry, global field service director at Hendrickson.

Educational pods are designed for patrons who want to learn on their own time and at their own pace and can accommodate various learning styles.

Convenient three to 10 minute videos, which are ideal for fluctuating technicians’ schedules, can be viewed anytime day or night and can start, stop or pause for review.

Technical literature is also available for downloading, printing or to be read at leisure. Upon successful completion of a course, which includes a brief test, a certificate will be provided with a printable option.

Berry said the Hendrickson Academy is a fluid, expandable, educational portal with a number of courses currently available:

  • MAXX22T – Trailer air disc brake systems
  • TIREMAAX PRO – Automatic tire pressure control systems
  • HXL3, HXL5 and HXL7 Ready-To-Roll Wheel-end Components. Fully integrated solutions that minimize operating costs and improve performance, and
  • HAULMAAX - Vocational applications where durability, lightweight and driver comfort are essential.

The online courses can be found at www.hendrickson-academy.com.

Additional educational content will be added on a continuing basis.

The industry will be notified as new courses become available.
