Air Brakes Study Guide & Refresher Program

Course Overview

This online Air Brakes course is designed as a refresher and study aid for individuals who will write an Alberta Air Brake knowledge test at a registry. This course is also ideal for individuals or corporations with employees who need air brake refresher training.

The program comes in 4 sections: Sections 1 & 2 represent the full Alberta Curriculum; Section 3 is a set of interactive activities to enhance the learner experience and Section 4 is practice tests.
