Air Brakes

This MELT Air Brakes course covers the fundamentals of air brakes, including the operation and maintenance of air-braked vehicles. This course is taught in two parts, a 7 hour classroom session and a practical in-yard session. We cover topics such as the basic components of an air system, how to identify the function of each component, how to check for proper brake adjustment, how to set up the brakes, and how to maintain and troubleshoot the air brake system. In order to participate in this course, you must be at least 18 years of age and have successfully passed the written air test.
