WOODRIDGE, Ill. – Hendrickson has scheduled its next round of technical suspension training for the heavy-duty transportation industry with its ninth session of the Hendrickson Vehicle Suspension Institute (HVSI).

Hundreds of technicians from the United States and Canada from independent repair facilities, fleets, and OE service dealerships have participated in the past eight installments. These training sessions have taken place previously in Chicago, Canton, Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, and Los Angeles.

The HVSI program provides technicians as well as parts and service personnel with a basic orientation for the recommended installation, service, maintenance and repair procedures for newer models of Hendrickson truck and trailer suspensions.

Two sessions will be held from June 19, 2012 through June 22, 2012 at the Universal Technical Institute (UTI) in Exton, Pennsylvania. These two sessions will be hands-on training covering the PRIMAAX EX® vocational truck air suspension and HAULMAAX ® rubber block truck suspension, and suspension system performance analysis.

Hendrickson regional service managers and technical support managers conduct the training sessions which are spread over a day and a half. Additional sessions are planned in 2012 and will be announced at a future date.

“The overwhelming feedback on our HVSI program has been outstanding,” said David McCleave, aftermarket/technical services director for the Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems. “It is our objective to train and educate as many technicians and parts professionals as possible to keep our customers’ trucks and trailers on the road and in optimum condition.”
