By Sarah Ann McCay05 May 2014
JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company, has been awarded the SolutionFest Best Mobile Solution award from the eLearning Guide for its JLG Hydraulics course.
This is the second year in a row that the access equipment manufacturer has won the award.
Florida-based contractor Artisan E-Learning developed JLG’s mobile solution. The course provides customers with the basic information needed to read JLG hydraulic schematics and understand JLG hydraulic systems. The course shows how major hydraulic components used on JLG equipment function and prepares students to participate in hands-on training at JLG’s classroom training. The course was designed on a mobile platform so technicians worldwide can access the training anytime, anywhere.
“Our equipment is mobile, our customers are mobile, and our training is mobile,” said Rick Smith, JLG Industries senior director of product training.
“Winning the Best Mobile Solution award two years in a row is very exciting. It validates the hard work the JLG training department and our partners at Artisan are doing to deliver high-quality training to our customers. Our mobile e-learning offering is one of several training initiatives at JLG. We are on schedule to open our new training center and proving grounds in July.”
