WARRENVILLE, Ill. — IC Bus LLC will hold a fall session of its IC Bus University training program for school bus technicians the week of Oct. 18, 2010, at its plant in Tulsa, Okla.

A guided plant tour of the Tulsa facility is also included that focuses on the placement and location of critical components in a bus.

“We are gratified by the continuing interest in IC Bus University,” said John Thompson, training director for IC Bus. “Thus far, we have had students from as far away as American Samoa and from all over the United States and Canada. We are extremely proud of the quality of our offering and look forward to continuing this program for the October session and beyond.”
