What’s Included With Each Video
As we explore these subjects together, you will see that there are a lot of concepts that will allow us to become better at what we do. Each of these 10 packages contains a short video, some written material, and a quiz to will help you evaluate your understanding.
The videos are easy to watch with the intent that you can watch them at home sitting in an easy chair.
The written material consists of two parts: the first is an easy-to-read introduction to the topic and the second part is an in-depth discussion with graphics and text.
These packages are not repair manuals. Nor are they design manuals. Rather, they are a series of training packages that will teach you the concepts behind a truck, some of the unique technology in a truck’s design, and how we make a truck more efficient.
