ARTSA announces upcoming events for February

The Australian Road Transport Suppliers Association (ARTSA) will host its first Annual General Meeting for 2014 on Wednesday, 19th February at the ARRB Group in Vermont South, Victoria.

“Our traditional start to the year at ARRB Group will include technical presentations across the ARTSA agenda,” said Rob Perkins, ARTSA Executive Officer.

In addition, ARTSA also announced the rescheduling of the ARTSA Training 'Forensic Engineering Course'. Initially slated for November, the course will now be held on Thursday and Friday, 27th and 28th February at Lifesaving Victoria, Port Melbourne.

The two-day event is an eight part course that will cover 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; and 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,” Perkins added.
