Noregon announced Tuesday it is now offering additional benefits for schools and students enrolled in its Education Program.
Noregon launched its Education Program in March 2018 to help post-high school diesel programs access the tools and educational materials necessary to prepare students for a career as a technician.
Since debuting the program, Noregon has provided classrooms with a license for JPRO Professional, training materials, a JPRO Certification course for each student enrolled in the class, semester-long student licenses for JPRO’s Virtual Truck to train while away from the classroom, discounted hardware and software, and scholarship opportunities.
This week the company announced additional benefits including expanded free licenses for JPRO and NextStep Repair in the classroom, greater discounts on hardware, and enhanced graduation packages for students that include a free one-year license to JPRO Professional and NextStep Repair, plus a one-time 40 percent discount code to the Noregon store.
“Though we formally debuted the Education Program in 2018, education has long been one of the most important initiatives at Noregon,” says Jason Hedman, Noregon product manager. “We have longstanding relationships with diesel programs across the country and noticed a common need for better tools and training materials, often unavailable due to budgetary concerns."
“We’re committed to giving students the tools and training necessary to enter the shop and perform at a level that exceeds their employer’s expectations. By providing students with JPRO and NextStep Repair, they join the workforce with the tools and experience to efficiently diagnose and repair all makes and models of heavy-duty trucks,” says Hedman.
Enrollment in the Education Program is free for qualifying post-high school diesel programs. Once approved, Noregon says the school receives all benefits of the program and their students become eligible for Noregon’s scholarships, which are provided each semester.
Schools are encouraged to visit the company’s website to learn more and apply to become an Education Program member today, the company says.
