Thomas Built Buses has released details on the 2014 schedule for its maintenance training series.

The Thomas Built Institute’s Service Training East will take place in Greensboro, N.C., from April 29 to May 2. A second training session will be held Sept. 9 to 12 in Dallas.

Participating technicians select the track they want and receive 28 credit hours of continuing education.

The 2014 Thomas Built Institute curriculum includes:

• 2014 emissions system
• Advanced electrical
• A choice of one of the following two tracks:
– Type C: Multiplex, service link and troubleshooting
– Type D: Electrical and fan drive
• Coolant, maintenance and cost savings
• Utilizing websites, resources and wire diagrams
• Factory tours

Registration is limited to 100 participants to ensure small classes and personal attention. The cost is $325 and includes lunch and ground transportation.
