This is a 2-day program that is offered at each of our conveniently located training centers throughout Wisconsin and Illinois.
Well trained technicians reduce your cost of ownership. Watch maintenance go down, equipment productivity go up, and operator safety improve. We offer comprehensive in-house instructional programs at your site or ours, to keep your technicians updated on the latest product changes and maintenance techniques. Since many technicians are hands-on learners, we go above and beyond traditional classroom training, allowing participants to work on equipment with instructor supervision. Technicians can move at their own pace and focus on the particular tasks and skill groups that best serve their organization’s needs.
Whether you’re training service technicians or equipment operators, new hires or seasoned supervisors, our training programs will help you drive performance, promote safety and reduce total cost of ownership.
