Sessions throughout the course cover subjects such as: Forensic Inspection, Truck and Trailer Fire Causation, Vehicle Dynamics, Modelling & Crashes, Vehicle Braking and Stability, Wear, Failure Modes & Bearings, Tyres, Axles, Ride, Alignment & Steering, Modifications to Heavy Vehicles and Advanced & Emerging Technologies on Heavy Vehicles.
