Air Brake Training “Q” Endorsement
This course is a 2 day course and takes 12 hours to complete. Students will receive a “Notice of Air Brake Program Completion” upon successful completion of our course. A knowledge test must then be completed at any Alberta Registry office. Once you have passed your knowledge test and the registry has stamped your “Notice of Air Brake Program Completion”, you can then apply the Q endorsement to your driver’s license.
Students with out of province driver’s licenses are eligible to take this course. Please be aware that to apply the Q to your license, you will be required to switch over to an Alberta driver’s license.
At certain times of the year courses fill quickly and it is recommended to pre-book a minimum of 1 week in advance of the expected course date.
