Wirtgen University Plans Its Winter Training Schedule

Construction Equipment Guide

Make plans now to attend one of the Wirtgen America Inc. Technical Service Schools this winter.

Most are offered at no charge for qualified attendees. By fully training service technicians, companies can optimize machine uptime and availability, better please customers and enhance the bottom line. That’s why Wirtgen invites service technicians to its annual training classes for Wirtgen’s milling and recycling equipment.

Classes are held in Wirtgen’s multimedia training facility at its North American headquarters in Nashville, Tenn. There is no registration fee for the Nashville-based schools, and lodging rates are arranged for attendees at a nearby hotel. On class days, Wirtgen provides lunch and transportation to and from the hotel. Registrants are responsible for transportation to and from Nashville, lodging and other meals.

For the 2007-2008 Wirtgen University, Wirtgen has revised its training programs to provide more complete product coverage through more classroom and shop time. Scheduling for classes also is easier, according to Wirtgen.

For milling machines, three classes are offered; two are designed for mechanics, and the third is designed for those who only perform routine maintenance.

The first is a four-day electrical class that covers all models of milling machines. The second is a three-day hydraulics class that covers all models of milling machines. Because these two classes cover all milling machine models, personnel can attend any of these classes without regard to a particular machine model. This effectively increases the number of available classes for personnel.

Technicians may choose either the electrical class, the hydraulics class, or both.

The third class is a two-day, model-specific class designed for those who perform routine maintenance on any of the W 2000 series milling machines.

Because it does not involve in-depth repairs, it is best suited for operators and groundmen.

Wirtgen is again offering a class in foam technology. This class is suited to those persons involved in the management or supervision of foam recycling projects. This class addresses the technical issues of foam and its application. It does not address the maintenance and repair of machinery.

Wirtgen also is offering a course on the maintenance and repair of “Basic” Wirtgen Recyclers (WR 2000 Basic and WR 2500 S Basic) and the WR 2500 S Foam Injection System.

Wirtgen University’s winter schedule runs from December 2007 to March 2008.
