2013 Technical and Maintenance Conference program revealed

The Australian Trucking Association (ATA) has revealed the program for the 2013 Technical and Maintenance Conference, which will be held at the Automotive Centre of Excellence in Melbourne on October 28-30.

“The conference will include 15 technical forums on key issues like truck electrical fault finding, parts purchasing and tyre selection and maintenance,” said ATA CEO, Stuart St Clair. “The technical forums will help delegates build a stronger safety culture in their businesses, get better mileage for their fuel dollars and improve their bottom lines.

“The conference will also include nine hands-on product training workshops, delivered by supplier experts. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance for each workshop they attend, signed by the manufacturer and TMC.”

Product training workshops, now an integral part of the program, will include advice from Cummins on aftermarket fuelling devices, servicing BPW drum brake trailer axles, heavy duty transmission service and diagnostic training with Eaton Service Ranger 4 and installing, inspecting and servicing SAF-Holland Modul suspensions with 12t drum brake axles and the G36 fifth wheel range.

“TMC 2013 is a great opportunity for businesses to invest in the younger members of their teams, because they can build their networks and learn from more experienced professionals,” said St Clair. “We have set our registration fees to provide substantial discounts to businesses that register groups of three or more people.”

The event will also include an Awards Dinner on Monday, 28 October, at which the 2013 Craig Roseneder Award for technical and maintenance excellence in the workshop will be presented.
