Goodlettsville Training Popular
Prevost Commercial Customer Training sessions were recently held at the Goodlettsville, TN facility on the outskirts of Nashville. The session is one of the company’s largest events in the series, second only to the Annual Factory Training conducted each year at the headquarters in St. Claire, Quebec. This year, 47 customers, representing 23 motorcoach companies that run Prevost products, attended the training in Nashville.
Fourteen (14) Prevost Trainers and Customer Support Managers led the classroom and hands-on training sessions, which focused on recent design changes, innovations, and new components for the Prevost H3-45 and X3-45 models as well as the Volvo 9700.
“The extensive curricula available through Prevost Technical Institute further ensures our steadfast commitment to stand by our products and continually deliver exceptional aftermarket service to our customers,” says Robert Hitt, director, Prevost Aftermarket Training. “Over the past year, more than 600 technicians successfully completed one or more of our training programs.”
Hitt adds that Prevost customers who attend the programs regard their experience as invaluable to their maintenance operations, particularly for new employees unfamiliar with Prevost and Volvo coaches.
