April 15 is the closing date for registration to attend the American Council of Frame and Alignment Specialists’ latest technician training clinic, which is being held at the Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems training facility in Huntington, Ind. The clinic is limited to 22 technicians and is filling rapidly, the organization says.
Understanding the effects of the ABS 6 Driver Assist Module and Electronic Stability programming is critical to all technicians that are involved with front end alignment, chassis alignment, front end component and suspension repair or modification, and brake repair, according to ACOFAS. Failing to know or understand how these systems are combined in this new technology could result in placing an unsafe vehicle on the highways, ACOFAS says.
The clinic, as in all ACOFAS clinics, will be a combination of classroom and hands-on training. Past ACOFAS training clinics have included front end and total chassis alignment, axle straightening, steering gear analysis and repair, frame diagnostics and straightening, and steering and suspension enhancements.
