You’ve heard me speak once or twice about the benefits of diesel. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: diesel is comparable or even cleaner than other fuel types based on EPA regulated emissions. It’s proven, reliable, cost-effective, efficient and the best fuel of choice for most districts.

A well-maintained bus is key to lowering your total cost of ownership. And a well-trained technician who is up-to-date on all of the latest innovations in the industry is crucial in keeping maintenance at the right level.
As the school year winds down, consider enrolling your technicians in an extra credit opportunity, the Thomas Built Institute. It’s not too late to take advantage of the 2017 Thomas Built Institute West, which will take place July 11-13 in Reno, NV in conjunction with this year’s STN Expo.
In this seminar, technicians will get hands-on training and up to 28 credit hours in less than a week on subjects such as product updates, EPA emissions technologies, electrical systems, web tools and more. Class sizes are limited and fill up quickly, so early enrollment is encouraged. Register today at /events/thomas-bus-institute/
