SMALL and LARGE TRANSIT VEHICLE MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL - DON'T MISS OUT ON AzTA'S FIRST MAINTENANCE FORUM!

SPACE IS LIMITED – REGISTER NOW!!

AzTA's FIRST Maintenance Forum will address Small and Large Transit Vehicle maintenance and diagnostics in a variety of areas – hands-on OEM training for technicians and mechanics.  The Maintenance Forum has been designed to allow for small class sizes with Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) training along with product familiarization.  This type of training is extremely valuable in assisting participants in understanding the diagnostics and maintenance of their systems and products.  The Maintenance Forum offers participants a unique opportunity to network with other technicians and establish a peer network for future collaboration and assistance on difficult issues.  It is highly probable that someone attending has experienced that same failure in the past.  The Maintenance Forum will also allow participants to obtain OEM contacts to assist in any future challenges.  And, of course, it wouldn't be an AzTA Event without OEM sponsored give-aways and gift cards for all the participants!  NOTE:  Breakfast and lunch provided.
