Bendix Salutes Maintenance Pros During Tech Appreciation Week

The fourth annual National Technician Appreciation Week takes place Sept. 24-30.

Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC (Bendix) announced it is offering a special salute to service professionals during National Technician Appreciation Week.

Sponsored by the American Trucking Associations (ATA) and ATA’s Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC), the fourth annual National Technician Appreciation Week takes place Sept. 24-30. The week directly follows this year’s ATA TMC fall meeting in Cleveland, Ohio, and its TMCSuperTech National Technician Skills Competitions for professional commercial vehicle technicians. Bendix was a sponsor of this year’s TMCSuperTech competition and its brake station.

National Technician Appreciation Week celebrates the hard work and commitment of professional technicians, while also helping to attract prospective talent to one of the most in-demand careers in the trucking industry.

“Every kind of commercial vehicle – tractor-trailers, fire and rescue vehicles, school buses, cement mixers, refuse haulers, delivery vans, to name just a few – is kept rolling by dedicated professionals whose skills help enhance the safety of their fleet, the drivers, and the roads we all share,” said Fred Andersky, Bendix director – demos, sales and service training. 

“From the front of the tractor to the back of the trailer, the role of the professional technician has become more complex, more diverse, and more challenging thanks to the exponential leap in technologies present on today’s commercial vehicles. It’s a growing opportunity in a vital field. Without technicians, trucks go nowhere – and America stops. We couldn’t be more grateful for everything they do,” Andersky added.

Bendix says it offers in-person and online training opportunities for fleet technicians, owner-operators, maintenance team leaders, and others to enhance the skills necessary for keeping vehicles on the road and in safe operating condition.

In addition, since 2013, the Bendix On-Line Brake School has been available as an ever-expanding 24/7/365 training resource – and the site (brake-school.com) now offers more than 100 courses and numbers nearly 150,000 registered users, according to Bendix. Students can access a curriculum covering the full spectrum of braking and active vehicle safety system product topics, ranging from overall education on product features and operation to troubleshooting, diagnostics, and maintenance best practices. Bendix also develops customized brake-school.com educational plans for fleets and industry organizations.
