In-Person Service & Repair Class Description

RKI is pleased to announce we are hosting an in-person service and repair training starting with the March 15-17 class. In January we announced the March class might be virtual and this is no longer the case. RKI’s service and repair training is designed to be a hands-on course where students breakdown the instruments. We are happy to announce the March class will not be an exception to this design, and the March class will be onsite. Class sizes are limited, so enroll today!

Service classes are available to all current RKI Distributors, and have been designed to provide a high level of technical training to enhance the abilities of service personnel who are responsible for maintaining and calibrating RKI products.

For all sessions, RKI will be following the state and county COVID restrictions for onsite social distancing. All attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination. The in-house class sizes will be limited to no more than 12 students.

Certificate of Participation

Is this a good class for sales personnel?

Taking a technical course like this will give you an edge over your competitors. Having a strong technical working knowledge of the gas detection products you sell makes you more of a resource to your customers, making you more valuable as a supplier. These hands-on classes will build on your technical knowledge for most of RKI’s current product line.
