Airbrake (Z) Endorsement

Length: 12 hours
Delivery: In class
Language: English

The objective of this course is to ensure drivers attain the knowledge necessary to operate air brake systems safely and to be able to detect faults in these systems.

  • This 2‐Day Air Brake or ‘Z’ Endorsement Course teaches participants how the air brake system works, it’s many components, how to operate the air brake system and to identify defects in the system.
  • Written and practical Air Brake testing will be completed throughout the curriculum of this 2‐Day course. Successful participants will be able to have the ‘Z’ Endorsement added to their licence after completion of this course.
  • Applicants must have an Ontario Class G Driver’s Licence or higher to take this course. Taking this course with us eliminates the need to do the written and practical air brake testing at the Drive Test Centre.
