New training materials for the Textar brand

For its global training days on brake services, the brake specialist TMD Friction will draw on its comprehensively updated training materials.

In order for workshops to correctly and efficiently test and fit the most modern brake systems, it is crucial that they always stay up to date concerning recent developments in advanced engineering. It is therefore of particular importance to TMD Friction to consistently assess and develop the content of its training programmes for its workshop, service hotline and sales employees. The latest update of the training documents for the Textar brand offers comprehensive improvements: Presentations have been visually reviewed, so as to make the training content quicker and easier to understand, and updated with regard to content. The training programmes include topics such as general information on how to work on brakes and legal guidelines concerning processes such as damage assessment and noise emissions.

Both the graphics and the content of the new material were developed by TMD Friction in-house. The TMD Friction Group’s technical training team is internationally active. It was thus able to take all of the global technical expertise into account. Every participant of a training programme should benefit from the entire global pool of knowledge and the consistently high TMD Friction standards no matter where in the world they are based.

“Thanks to our training programmes we can pass on our brake industry expertise to our customers. It is therefore very important to us that the information that we provide the participants with is state-of-the-art, as the technical challenges arising in the brake industry are increasing all the time. Workshops in particular have to be directly informed about technical changes as this is the only way they can ensure they offer their customers the best possible brake pad fitting service and can identify the causes of noises or other defects early on and correctly assess and prevent them,” explains Hartmut Kiessling, technical sales manager & trainer at TMD Friction.
