The second training event will be with Truma and will take place Oct. 24-26 at the Boxboro Regency Hotel in Boxboro, Massachusetts.
It will be a one-day class, taught on all three days. Because of the equipment set-ups and to maximize training time, all three classes will be held at the same location. Ninety-five percent of NERVDA members are within 100 miles of this facility.
The training will cover a half-day on the Truma Combi Unit and a half-day on the AquaGo. It will be hands-on training and the classes will be limited to 20 technicians each.
