For the first time, the North American Trailer Dealers Association (NATDA) is offering a certified technical training class presented by Dexter’s Bill Snider.
According to a press release, the four-hour, hands-on class will cover commonly used axles and suspensions, including a presentation on theory and practical training with spring axles and electric drum brakes. Snider will also discuss technician safety, component identification, wheel bearing and brake drum service, spring suspension operation, basic alignment trouble shooting and more.
“This course will positively impact dealership technicians,” explained Jesse Battle, NATDA executive director. “Dexter will provide these technicians with a highly valued education and certification that will translate into their quality of work.”
Though this year’s technical training course is full, NATDA and Dexter have partnered to provide two more editions of the class in 2020. NATDA will also provide additional, hands-on training courses covering other topics next year. The association will announce more details at a later date.
2019 NATDA Trade Show attendees can sign up for the 2020 courses by visiting the registration desk during this year’s show.
