ARTSA Training - the re-scheduled “Forensic engineering course”

8am - 5pm, Thursday and Friday, 27th and 28th February
Lifesaving Victoria, 200 The Boulevard, Port Melbourne

This course was originally scheduled for last November. It is now re-scheduled to February 27 and 28 and Lifesaving Victoria.

Run over two days it is an 8 part course that is much more than “forensic” and covers:

  • Forensic inspection, truck and trailer fire causation
  • Vehicle dynamics, modelling and crash investigation
  • Vehicle braking and stability
  • Wear, failure modes and bearings
  • Tyres, axles, ride, alignment and steering
  • Modification to heavy vehicles
  • Advanced and emerging technologies for heavy vehicles

With 11 expert presenters, this is an immensely valuable course on the characteristics and in-service behaviour of heavy vehicles

It will not be repeated again soon so don’t put this off - enrol now! To find out more and to enrol go to www.artsa.com.au/training/

Global Truck and Trailer Leaders Summit

8.30am - 5pm, Tuesday and Wednesday 1st and 2nd April
Lifesaving Victoria, 200 The Boulevard, Port Melbourne

Following on from previous successful ARTSA conferences, this leaders summit will benefit from many of the world manufacturers who are coming to Melbourne for the International Truck Trailer and Equipment Show

With around 25 speakers from across the world this will be an outstanding event to discuss the global direction of truck and trailer market

Other issues

Plenty more happening:

  • The Federal Government’s announcement on the introduction of ABS on heavy trailers is a baby step in the direction of improved braking outcomes in Australia.

  • Four Corners are due to air a program on the 3rd February that is likely to highlight issues around heavy vehicle maintenance.

  • RMS in NSW are working on maintenance related issues to do with tankers. We will have an opportunity early in the year to discuss their maintenance procedures and how ARTSA members can assist them to improve inspection procedures for safety critical parts

Get your diaries out and put these dates down. Book in now for the ARTSA training and the Global Truck and Trailer Leaders Summit

It will be a great 2014
