2 Day Course

This 2 day course covers the development of axle and suspension systems and deals with maintenance and servicing issues. The benefit of a 2 day course allows the 4 modules - Hub Systems, Drum Brake, Disk Brake and Air Suspension - to be covered in far more depth than the 1 day course and will also include tuition on module replacement techniques and diagnostics. In our fully equipped workshop there will be opportunities to gain valuable practical experience under supervision from our highly trained BPW personnel. To ensure that the necessary standards and knowledge have been achieved throughout the course, there will be a 40 question multiple choice test on the afternoon of the 2nd day. Delegates who successfully complete this course will receive an accredited certificate with their test results printed on the reverse.

Course Fee: £220.00 + VAT per person

2 Day Course with Accommodation

This 2 day course is identical in content to the 2 day course outlined above but includes a 1 night stay, evening meal and breakfast at a Premier Inn which is just 400 metres from our training centre in Leicester.

Course Fee: £325.00+ VAT per person

Dates for the 2 Day Courses with/without Accomodation:

Braking Technology Course

This 1 day course is designed to introduce candidates to trailer EBS systems and to give an insight into fault patterns and diagnosis.

All three main EBS systems are covered (Haldex, Wabco and Knorr). There is no accreditation at the end of this course and no prior knowledge of braking circuits is assumed.
