TULSA, Okla. — This year’s first session of IC Bus University, the manufacturer’s maintenance training program, will be held here the week of March 14.
Attendees will be provided with up to 42 hours of instruction on bus maintenance, engines, bus electrical components, Ricon lifts, Braun lifts, Allison transmissions, SMI equipment, Navistar parts, as well other areas of concern to school bus technicians. They will also receive a guided tour of the Tulsa bus plant.

We believe that it is ‘best in class’ training for the self-maintainer, and we expect the March session to fill quickly. We really appreciate the interest in our training programs, and based upon the feedback that we have received on previous sessions, we expect to continue to offer additional sessions through 2011 and beyond. Over 500 school bus technicians from as far away as American Samoa have attended IC Bus University.”
