FORT VALLEY, Ga. — The April session of Blue Bird’s technical training class was held last week, and the school bus manufacturer reports that it was a full session.

Technicians received in-depth training on many elements of Blue Bird’s complete line of buses, in addition to updates on SCR technology, alternative fuel options and a comprehensive factory tour.

The class was "very helpful in giving me the information and tools to assist with my fleet and train other technicians back home,” said Steve Hudson of Willapa Valley School District 160 in Menlo, Wash.

Blue Bird officials said that there are only a few spots remaining for these upcoming technical training classes:

• Blue Bird Vision: May 17-20
• All American: July 12-15
• Blue Bird Vision: July 19-22

To register for a training session, contact your local Blue Bird dealer.
