What is involved in a day at Air brake Endorsement?

We will start off with a 6 hour theory session, followed by an Air Brake Theory Examination.

Upon successful completion of the Examination, the student will be given a practical demonstration of inspection and testing the air system, and adjusting the slack adjusters.

This will be followed by student practice and successful demonstration by the student to the satisfaction of the instructor. With smaller classes, this process can usually be accomplished the same day. With larger classes, there may be another day scheduled to practice and perform the air brake practical.

Ultimately the student should achieve his certificate, and then proceed to the registry to register the certificate on his license as a “Q” endorsement.
