Terex Utilities held its annual Service School from June 9 to June 11 in Watertown, S.D., hosting 71 people representing 38 utility companies.

The Service School is an annual event to keep mechanics and service technicians up-to-date in the latest Terex equipment technologies and advancements. During the three-day event, participants worked through a series of stations with Terex Utility equipment and training aids to learn tips, tricks and techniques from Terex instructors.

“Providing an innovative hands-on approach creates an atmosphere where participants feel comfortable asking questions and sharing their experiences with the group.” said, Ken Vlasman, customer service manager, Terex Utilities. “This school included in-depth experiences with various units, components and systems.”

Mechanics and technicians who could not attend the event in Watertown will have the opportunity to attend Terex’s Service Schools on Sept. 9-10 in White House, Tenn., on Sept. 15-17 in Waukesha, Wis., and on Oct. 13-15 in Thomasville, Pa. Terex customers can also request customized training at their own facilities or use Terex Utilities' online training university.

“Our Service Schools are designed to provide attendees of all skill levels with the most comprehensive, in-depth information available on a wide-variety of utility equipment to enable them to better do their jobs,” said Vlasman.
