Training Tour’s Finale

Now follow that

On Friday 25th February – the great North American Training Tour hosted its final guests.

From Florida to British Columbia – between July and February – 14 team members delivered 68 days of training and 34 days of events to 2000 people.

Members of Victron staff, and Victron-product Ambassadors would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has attended, and to everyone who helped host the marathon event.

Now we know how much we didn’t know!

That was a remark we often heard. And team members, too, found the experience invaluable – listening, finding out what users want to see in our products, what information they need …and how they like to get it.

Installer David Flather of Pinnacle Innovations was one of the two thousand professional attendees.

What’s next?

We’re going bigger …and different!

This year – 2022 – we’ll launch a series of ‘whole weekend’ in-depth hands-on training.

In partnership with our distributors we’ll offer System Installers detailed product schooling across our entire range, covering all product applications.

These events will take place across ten North American states – convening on a Friday evening at 17:00 they’ll go right through ’til Sunday afternoon at 16:00, delivering a fully immersive weekend of information and fun as, together, we build systems hands on, from scratch. It’s a place where professionals can meet peers, gain knowledge, be challenged …and get connected to a network of like-minded individuals so that no future challenge will be too great!

Dates for these events will be posted on our Victron Professional page next month – do look out for it. If you don’t have a Victron Professional account yet you’re welcome to visit the ‘Professional‘ page, now, and create one.

…And next year, in 2023, we’ll be hosting the world’s biggest training event in Miami – strap in, more news to follow!

And finally…

Let’s hear some thoughts about the huge North American Trailer Training tour now that all dates have been completed:

Tour Manager Reian Werkman describes the whole experience as a …two-way Knowledge-Sharing platform where we gave our training – and learnt valuable lessons from the trainees. 

Event organiser Saul Charlesworth says that …being part of such a grand scale project has been exciting, challenging, and rewarding – all at the same time! Its success is due to hard work and dedication from Victron staff and ambassadors who have contributed their skills, knowledge, and passion for Victron. The lessons we learned over the course of the 8-month training tour will now be applied to future training events, in North America, and across the globe.
