  • Organize on-site logistics of all training courses including needed equipment, training material/aids, shop and classroom, and other misc. items prior to class start time
  • Deliver classroom training courses to attendees
  • Deliver certified classes at the same level of instructional quality, content, infrastructure, and safety as courses instructed by the John Deere training organization
  • Report results of the training event and roster to John Deere training department
  • Tear down the class to return the learning environment to its original state
  • Ensuring that all students attend the class for the full duration
  • Stay current on new products and technology while regionalizing material to the audience
  • Coordinates and schedules all in-house technician training
  • Participate in Service EDUCATE Training programs required for the development of skills and knowledge

Jimmy will work closely with the product support and sales teams to identify areas of needed improvement. His office/training room is in our Frederick branch.

Thanks for joining me in welcoming Jimmy to the team.
