Navistar debuts tech education partnership

Navistar has launched the Navistar Service Essentials Program, a partnership program designed to help qualified technical schools prepare the next generation of truck and bus technicians.

“As we focus on growing customer Uptime, Navistar and our International Truck and IC Bus dealers are all committed to combating the industry’s growing technician shortage,” says Michael Cancelliere, Navistar president, Truck and Parts. “The new Navistar Service Essentials Program provides software and other solutions that will enhance the learning experience and attract additional students.”

Navistar says the program’s offerings include an array of interactive training courses and software solutions that cover engine diagnostics, vehicle health reports, electrical systems and control module programming. The program also provides access to informational tools related to parts and service. The Navistar Service Essentials Program is being made available to technical schools that partner with International Truck or IC Bus dealers, the company says.

“We believe that students benefit the most when their technical schools have partnerships in place with dealers who are focused on driving Uptime every day,” Cancelliere says. “That’s why Navistar, our dealers and technical schools are establishing a three-way partnership committed to back up this new program with real-world, practical experience. This approach will accelerate progress and put more students on a path to enter this vibrant and essential technology profession.”
