Volvo Penta Expands Service School Offerings in Great Lakes


Volvo Penta will be offering technical training classes at a wider array of locations by partnering with a number of vocational and technical schools in the United States and Canada.

The courses will allow regional technicians to receive the training they need to do their jobs well without having to travel too far. Volvo Penta says it ultimately hopes to develop the pool of technicians that will seek employment at Volvo Penta dealerships.

Volvo Penta technical training classes will be offered at Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario; Oak Harbor Vocational School in Oak Harbor, Ohio; Lake Career & Technical Center in Camdenton, Missouri; and the New England Institute of Technology in Providence, Rhode Island. Volvo Penta instructors will conduct the classes at the schools’ campuses for dealer and OEM service technicians, and also train the schools’ technical teachers to conduct future classes.

The majority of Volvo Penta’s courses are taught at the company’s training centers in Chesapeake, Virginia and Burnaby, British Columbia.
