Blue Bird to offer school bus technician training

Posted on March 4, 2010

FORT VALLEY, Ga. — Blue Bird Corp. will offer free factory technical training workshops here in the coming months for its dealer and customer’s school bus technicians.

The workshops will provide attendees with a combination of electronic media presentations, physical props and hands-on inspection of the Blue Bird bus chassis and body for the company’s All American and Vision models.

All main systems are covered, with primary focus on the latest product changes. The workshops are rounded out with a walking tour of the Blue Bird plant, providing technicians with an in-depth understanding of the systems obtained from viewing bus production from the chassis to the completed body.

The schedule for the 2010 factory technical training workshops is as follows:

• Blue Bird All American: April 26-29
• Blue Bird Vision: May 17-20
• Blue Bird All American: July 12-15
