Ariel Corp., a U.S.-based manufacturer of reciprocating compressors for natural gas, has launched what it is calling the Ariel Mobile Training Lab. The 53-foot, semi-trailer classroom is designed to deliver product training programs out in the field. Ariel says the mobile classroom will offer product and technical training to customers, distributors and selected educational institutions, which will be taught by Ariel’s product training experts.
Classes are set up in flexible modules that can be customized to meet individual customer needs. Seven workstations with individualized toolsets provide ample space for active student participation. The mobile lab also features a fully functioning Ariel JGJ/2 compressor mounted on an alignment stand, for hands-on training.
“The new mobile lab allows us to offer training in field locations, but in a well-laid-out setting much like our training center in Mount Vernon,” says Brett Parks, sales and distribution development manager. “We are looking forward to increasing the number of students we are able to reach who are unable to travel to Mount Vernon.”
