Service Technician Training

Service Training Builds Your Bottom Line

When your technicians are trained for precision, you’ll get maximum yield from your fleet. You’ll reduce internal service costs while improving shop workflow. Vehicle performance and uptime will increase and your staff will be better able to judge whether to keep service in-house or send it to your authorized Volvo Trucks dealer.

With a well-trained team of technicians, you can be confident they’re doing all they can to build your bottom line. Check out Volvo Trucks Academy’s comprehensive online and instructor-led course offering below, exclusively available to all Volvo customers.
