Preventive maintenance (PM) is the key to any successful maintenance program for commercial motor vehicles. Through preventive maintenance, vehicles are inspected, repaired, and maintained in such a way that defects are prevented from surfacing in the first place, before a violation or accident can occur. This course will prepare you to inspect, analyze, and repair heavy-duty trucks and equipment. The course covers everything from basic diesel engine operations to computerized truck management systems. You will explore how to work effectively and safely in a heavy vehicle environment, carry out routine maintenance, and develop knowledge of materials, engine mechanical, cooling and exhaust systems. You’ll understand how to efficiently diagnose, adjust, repair, or overhaul buses and trucks, or maintain and repair any type of diesel engines. You’ll also learn about heating and air conditioning systems, brake systems, starting and charging systems, fuel systems, steering and suspension systems, engine systems.
What Is The Training Course Methodology?
This training methodology illustrates the concepts involved in the above areas through practical consideration of actual real-life problems, as well as explanation of concepts by experts in area using video projectors and computer aided case studies based on practical applications. Participants will solve their system problem, where the trainee’s try to apply the skills learnt with guidance from our specialized experts. ACAD will provide participants a comprehensive assessment on the problems solved using the skills acquired in the training course.
