Distributor Training

Every year, Husqvarna holds Distributor Training sessions to teach our dealer's team members about Husqvarna and our products/services. We kicked off our Distributor Training program with our first session in Dallas on March 12-14! Husqvarna’s training team helped instruct over 33 participants. The training in Dallas marked the first time a Distributor Training session has been held outside of a Husqvarna facility. Our customer, Southwest Construction Services, opened their doors and graciously hosted the event.

The participants enjoyed the session and took a lot of new knowledge about our equipment and diamond blades with them. They learned about our products in the classroom and then headed outside to actually run the equipment. The trainers took the participants through a step-by-step process on how to run the equipment correctly. Then the participants took over and tried it for themselves. Almost all of our product categories were covered. Jim Davitz, Trainer, said, “One of the main pieces of knowledge the participants took away was the fact that Husqvarna is a diamond blade manufacturer. A lot of the people didn’t know that about us and learned more about the intricacies of diamond blades.”

New to the training sessions this year is the inclusion of a ½ day Customer Focused Selling or CFS training. Mark Majors, Regional Sales Manager, commented, “The participants couldn’t believe we were giving them the opportunity to learn CFS. They joined in the conversations, asked questions and I know they will take it back with them and use it.”

If you are selling Husqvarna Construction Products and are interested in attending an upcoming training session, there will be four more held throughout the year:

Olathe – May 7-9
Chicago – July 16-18
Columbia – Oct 8-10
Corona – Dec 10-12
