Overview

Taylor "Big Red" Service training classes offer a detailed analysis and study of all electrical, hydraulic, and air circuits employed on a particular Taylor model(s) being instructed. The engine, transmission, drive and steer axles are covered, as well as all basic preventive maintenance. The most complex issues (electrical and hydraulic) are fully covered in any class allowing the student to learn or better understand the most difficult systems. In addition to troubleshooting instruction, Volvo engine training includes access to VPPN (Volvo Penta Partner Network) and instruction for navigating the Volvo Vodia Diagnostic Software.

Virtual Training

Virtual training will be conducted via Microsoft Teams. Students are required to have a valid email address and internet connection. While a camera and microphone is not necessary, it is recommended in order for the student to communicate vocally with the instructor and other students. Prior to the class, the student will be sent an email with an invitation for the training and a download link for the virtual service training package. The service training package includes electronic copies of the following for the model being instructed: a set of schematics, an operator’s guide, a safety manual, and a maintenance manual as well as other pertinent training information. Factory Trained Certification is being offered in conjunction with virtual training classes. Students wishing to test may do so online.

Onsite Training

Each student will receive a service training packet that includes information for the particular Taylor model(s) being instructed. Service training packets include the following: a set of schematics; an operator's manual; a safety manual; and a USB Flash Drive containing the maintenance manual as well as other pertinent training information. Factory trained certification is being offered in conjunction with service training classes. While laptops will be provided to students for testing purposes, those wishing to test for the Master Certification Program are required to bring laptops with them to the service training class in order to review the service training information during testing. Electrical outlets are provided.
