Cummins-Meritor Brake Training Events Return in 2024

Cummins-Meritor Brake Training Events Return in 2024

The events will be hosted across 14 cities from June through November.

Cummins-Meritor announced the return of its live, in-person aftermarket parts training sessions, open to technicians nationwide. The 2024 Regional Training program focuses on maintenance and repair of heavy-duty commercial vehicle brakes, including both cam and air disc brake systems, the company said.

From June through November, training events will be hosted across 14 cities in the United States: Lakeland, FL, Atlanta, GA, Long Island, NY, Birmingham, AL, Deerfield Beach, FL, Novi, MI, Louisville, KY, Pittsburgh, PA, Seattle, WA, Minneapolis, MN, Syracuse, NY, Philadelphia, PA, Baltimore, MD, and Arlington, TX.

With morning and afternoon options per location, each training event is condensed into a 4-hour format.

“Our trainings cover critical areas such as brake adjustment, brake balance, automatic slack adjusters, reduced stopping distance (RSD), preventative maintenance and inspection, and diagnostic procedures,” said Joseph Baumer, technical training manager, at Cummins-Meritor. “Our last regional training events were held in 2020 and we are proud to bring them back as part of our comprehensive aftermarket training offering.”

The company said the training events compliment Cummins-Meritor’s online training portal, BullPen, which offers on-demand training courses, accessible 24/7.

A schedule and registration information for the training sessions are available on MeritorPartsXpress.com. Capacity is limited so online registration is required.
