Wacker Neuson opens Technical Academy

Wacker Neuson Technical AcademyWacker Neuson created a Technical Academy, which is a new endeavor by the compact and light construction equipment manufacturer to ensure contractors are up-to-date on the latest industry processes and techniques.

The Technical Academy’s first class is scheduled for March 24 and March 25 at Wacker Neuson’s training facility in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.

Class participants will prep the sub-grade, verify the mix design and receive expert training in placing and finishing superflat and high tolerance floors.

The prep course costs $250 per person.
