Astec announced the dates for the 2014 Advanced Customer Schools. Attendees can choose to attend one of these four sessions: January: 6-9, 13-16, 27-30 or February: 3-6, 2014. New for 2014, Astec now expands its training options by offering two different levels of classes. Level I classes will be offered in the January 6-9 and January 13-16 sessions. Level I basic training classes follow the format that established Astec's reputation for customer education by providing an overview of tips and techniques for better plant operation. These classes are intended for first time attendees to the Astec Schools.
New Level II classes will be offered January 27-30 or February 3-6. Level II classes narrow the focus and provide intense training in four main areas: Burners, Drums, Controls and Electrical Systems. These classes were created for returning students who wish to further their training. Previous attendance at any other Astec Advanced Customer Training session is a requirement. Astec Advanced Customer Schools teach hands-on maintenance and advanced troubleshooting techniques to fix problems fast. Instructors include Astec Engineers and Service Technicians with decades of field experience.
