2020 No-Cost Zephyr RHGSE “Train the Trainer” Classes
Zephyr is proud to once again be able to offer our customers “Train the Trainer” in-house No-Cost Training. The training is prepared to provide the highest level of success using the RHGSE to new and existing users of the Zephyr RHGSE. As of January 2020, we have provided 24 successful training classes, and look forward to meeting your personnel.
Each two (2) day class will have a maximum of 16 seats available. We generally try to limit the number of attendees to no more than three (3) personnel from each organization in order to reach as many trainers/trainees as possible. But if we have open seats available, we will do our best to accommodate the needed seats. Beginning in 2020, all future training sessions will require a minimum of eight (8) total attendees to be held as scheduled.
These classes are not only geared to “train the trainer” on the Rescue Hoist Ground Support Equipment, but also provides a venue as a way to share valuable experiences and lessons learned within the Rescue Hoist Community.
In order to facilitate this exchange of valuable information and maximize customer experience, if the minimum class size is not met, we will need to cancel and transfer your reservation to a future training date at your convenience. We look forward to meeting you at our facility and continue to have successful sharing of information sessions. We will notify all attendees via email four (4) weeks prior to the scheduled training date to confirm attendance.
Training will be provided on all versions of the Manual, Electric, and/or Hydraulic RHGSE depending on the attendees coming. Please submit serial number(s) of your Zephyr RHGSE so that we may prepare the appropriate Service Bulletins & Training Materials to meet your training needs.
