12:30pm-4:30pm - Cable replacement, cable installation, roller replacement, track repairs, operator fundamentals and adjustments, special tools of the trade, preventive maintenance

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 $600.00 per man per minimum eight hour day. 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.
