Truma Continuing Service Training Program Through August

Fri Jul 14, 2017

As the Truma AquaGo hybrid on-demand water heater becomes common place in today’s RVs, dealerships want to continue to build their knowledge and expertise on the latest innovations in hot water technology. Likewise, the Truma Combi, as the industry's only combined furnace and water heater, grows in popularity in both motorized and travel travelers, dealerships look to further gain the knowledge to support campers with their state-of-the-art technology.

Due to this increased dealer demand for product training, and the success of previous courses in the first half of 2017 in Texas, California, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, New Mexico and Arizona, Truma is continuing its service training program through the second half of the year. The full-day course introduces technicians to the Truma Combi and Truma AquaGo through an even balance of classroom presentation and hands-on troubleshooting and repair. Technicians will receive the added benefit of receiving credit towards their recertification continuing education requirements through RVIA/RVDA.

Below is a list of confirmed dates and locations:

July 18-20: Lake City, Florida
July 25-27: Tampa, Florida
Aug. 8-10: Westminster, California
