Jerr-Dan Corporation, an Oshkosh Corporation company (NYSE:OSK) and a single brand leader in the towing and recovery business, has introduced Jerr-Dan University, an industry-first product training program. Participants can view live demos of various course offerings, register for online training and create a training dashboard to get started.
Courses are presented using visual, interactive and text-driven training. An 80 percent score or higher is needed to successfully pass each course. Following completion, users will receive a badge and printable certificate.
“We launched Jerr-Dan University as a way to support towers who bravely serve as first responders in the field,” said Hal Wyatt, director of aftermarket support at Jerr-Dan. “In addition to the quality equipment we design and manufacture, this online training provides an additional step to enhancing on-the-job safety.”
Current courses include educational training for both Jerr-Dan’s JFB 50/60 rotator and the heavy-duty wrecker line. In February 2020, a new service and maintenance training module for Jerr-Dan’s standard duty carrier will be available and other modules are in development.
“In the future, Jerr-Dan University will serve as a comprehensive training library suitable for distributors and the industry at large,” said Wyatt. “This online tool allows users to fully understand the uniqueness of Jerr-Dan products from both an operational as well as a service and maintenance perspective.”
