Call it the School of Dock. The new Raymond Learning Center in Greene, N.Y., has opened its doors, offering classes on all things lift truck-related: lift truck operator and safety training, ways to maximize lift truck efficiency and procedures for servicing lift truck fleets.
The new 8,000-square-foot state-of-the-art training facility features a truck lab space as well as five classrooms equipped with the latest educational technologies, including large-screen displays, document cameras and high-speed Internet connections. It employs seven full-time staff members. Instructors specializing in technical topics and product applications will train anywhere from 300 to 700 students (mostly employees of Raymond's dealers and customers) each year.
