Volvo Penta rolls out online instructor-led training programs for dealers
Volvo Penta has begun a number of initiatives aimed at training, informing and arming dealers with the resources needed to better serve shared customers in the field.
The new platforms, which consist of online instructor-led training programs and a series of webinars, are geared toward all facets of dealer business including technical training, sales, warranty, parts and service.
Spurred in large measure by coronavirus-related travel restrictions, Volvo Penta's training team moved quickly to develop, test and roll out online instructor-led training programs in a few short weeks. To date, the offering includes threecourses and two courses. Volvo Penta will continue to expand and fine-tune the platform, increasing the number of available classes for both business segments. With a focus on continuous improvement, online instructor-led training has been solidified as a valued addition to the company's full lineup of existing training offerings.
In addition, Volvo Penta launched a series of informative webinars for its industrial dealer and distribution network throughout the Americas region. Seven tailored sessions were held over a four-week period, targeting dealer leadership, sales staff, technicians, application engineers, warranty administrators, sub-account managers, service dispatchers and parts department managers. Follow-up survey results showed that 97 percent of attendees responded favorably about their experience in these training sessions.

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.
When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
