Victron’s massive North America Training Tour!

Victron Training goes mobile

Hitting the road with its wheels spinning on July 15th the Victron Energy North America Training Tour is set to run and run.

Following the seasons, our technology-packed Training Trailer will be pulling up at venues right across the continent, attending a rolling diary of dates already booked as far ahead as next March.

Check the Schedule below to see when it will be in your area.

Who is it for?

The Victron Training Trailer is equipped with no fewer than seven different ‘example’ installations …so there’s something inside for everyone.

We will be offering two different kinds of Event days:  There will be informal ‘Open’ days – on which everyone is welcome to come along and explore our installations; and there will be ‘Structured Training’ days for Victron Professionals and their guests.

So whether you’re a Victron Installer, product Distributor, or power crazy DIY installer – building your own project for travelling by Land or Sea; Remote Living; Remote Working; or innovating your home with the latest private power technology – inside the Training Trailer you’ll find answers to the questions you’ve always wanted to ask; plus loads more super ideas and solutions you didn’t even know were possible.

Event Organiser Reian Werkman is dedicated to connecting people – both to each other, and to their passion.

Our Schedule of event days for the next couple of months is listed below. For ongoing news of the tour as it rolls towards your area please subscribe to our Facebook page. We’ll shortly be announcing a webpage with news and reviews about the tour.

What’s in the trailer?

The Training Trailer has seven unique set-ups which demonstrate ideal system topography design for:

The systems are being installed right now – we know that because we sneaked inside:

Victron Ambassador Marc Stevens installing the Off-Grid training installation.

Wherever you attend the Victron Training Tour you are guaranteed to receive expert guidance from Victron Staff, Regional Sales Managers – and Victron Ambassadors like Nate Yarbrough whose passion for our products you will be aware of from his Social Media Channels.

What happens on a training day?

Your time will be maximised by our slick one-day training plan. From 08:30 to 16:45 you will receive professional training, rotating through each of our seven example installations.

We don’t mean just standing and looking – you will be hands-on wiring the systems with an expert standing-by to answer questions as you work.

DIY visitors will receive training specifically targeted at their area of interest.

You’ll get an overview of all our products; you’ll be first to hear about products we’re launching soon; and you’ll get a feel of what drives our company.

But it’s not just a one way street – our Training Tour is a great way for us to listen to your ideas, and to learn what you think will be the most interesting development areas for the future.

More: Offering training to Distributors, Installers and DIYers at the same time is a great opportunity for customers and suppliers to meet each other, and to build their relationship.

Who are our Ambassadors?

Which locations will the Roadshow be visiting?
