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.
