ZF Marine opens Technical Training Center

Monday, July 12, 2010

ZF Marine LLC, the North American subsidiary of ZF Marine Group in Padova, opened its new , located at ZF Marine's new North American headquarters facility in Miramar, FL. It is designed to provide ZF Marine’s authorized North and Central American service partners with comprehensive training modules on all of ZF Marine’s family of products.

“Expanding our training capabilities was one of the priorities when we were building our new headquarters facility.  Our rapidly expanding product offering combined with the ongoing expansion of our independent service network made sending factory training personnel into the field inefficient,” said Tim McFarland Aftermarket Segment Manager.  

The new facility is comprised of two parts, a classroom for theoretical training, and a fully equipped, dedicated shop area for practical training. The modern, multimedia friendly classroom is capable of accommodating 24 students. Factory trained bilingual instructors allow ZF Marine to host courses in both English and Spanish for the benefit of non English speaking technicians coming to ZF Marine LLC for training.

A group of trainees from and Central American service locations completed the first training course on ZF Marine’s electronic control systems in the new facility.  Future courses will include product diagnostic and repair for transmissions, as well as ZF Marine’s family of POD drives.  The company is also considering offering basic maintenance courses for captains and boat owners in the future.  Interested parties can contact ZF Marine LLC’s Training Manager, Charlie Podoloff at 954-441-4034
