WIKA Mobile Control, LP (formerly Hirschmann / PAT), a leading supplier of crane operator aids, including load moment indicators (LMI), has released new service training dates for 2019 after successfully kickstarting training programs in April 2019.
WIKA Mobile Control’s new service training courses feature classroom training along with actual hands-on experience using system simulators. The courses include system theory, sensor calibration, wiring, hands-on troubleshooting and troubleshooting CAN Bus error codes. Course materials include an increased number of visuals, hands-on learning activities, and classroom interaction. The courses are structured to meet the requirements of mechanics and operators regardless of their level of experience.
After four successful training events in Chambersburg/PA, Harrisburg/PA, Atlanta/GA and Chicago/IL, two more events will take place across the USA in 2019:
- October 8-10, 2019 – Las Vegas/NV
- December 10-12, 2019 – San Antonio/TX
Each course will cover current OEM’s and aftermarket WMC products in the field including the new qSCALE Ix and cSCALE indicators. In addition to the scheduled training dates above, courses can also be structured for companies at their facilities to meet specific requirements – both, in the US and in the rest of the world!
