Dock Leveler Training
Because of the variety of manufacturers and types of levelers we recommend training on location to address your specific training needs. About 18 manufacturers have produced three primary types of levelers: mechanical, hydraulic and air, along with edge of dock levelers. Before scheduling training we prefer to get information on the models and types of levelers you have. We also recommend a day of training for each type of leveler.
Now Available! Training at our West Chicago facility! Companies with only one or two men to train can now send them to us and save on the cost of garage door training. The cost is $1200.00 per man per minimum eight hour day. If there are two trainees on the same day, the cost is $1000 per man. For three the price is $900 per man, and for four the price is $800 per man. We provide lunch; your company provides travel and lodging.
In addition to seminar and travel costs a primary factor to consider is the difference in training. Training at our facility is broader and more generic; training at a customer's facility is specific to their unique applications. Because of space limitations dock leveler training is not available at our location.
If you are interested in pursuing a career in one of the trades, and if the garage door business interests you, we recommend you take the free eight-minute mechanical aptitude test at the Institute of Psychometric Coaching web site. The door business challenges the most skilled and those with the brightest minds. Your life in the door business will be less complicated if you score very high on the test.
