Gain an advantage with the Vogelsang Service School
Vogelsang USA offers 2-day, free factory training throughout most of the year. The course, your hotel stay (two nights), and food while you’re onsite are free—all you need to do is arrange for transportation (flights and/or car rental).
The service school covers a full array of topics on Vogelsang pumps, grinders and macerators, from introduction to field start-up, parts replacement and troubleshooting.

Your questions on Factory Training - Our service FAQs
Attendees should either be a distributor, contractor, OEM or end user personnel who would benefit from learning about the inner workings of the Vogelsang Pump, RotaCut inline grinder and/or XRipper twin-shaft grinders.
While not as common, we do accept attendees that have a pending purchase or are awaiting delivery/installation of a Vogelsang product.
Our factory trainings, known as Service Schools, are a blend of hands-on product training and in-class reviews of presentations, videos, and finally a certification test.
Two days, plus travel. Service Schools are always run on a Thursday and Friday, but require attendees to be at our Ravenna, OH facility at 8:00am locally (EST) on Thursday. Attendees are also scheduled to be in class until 2:00pm on Friday. Therefore, we book hotels stays for Wednesday night and Thursday and ask that you book flights or arrange travel accordingly. Note, our facility is about a 45-minute drive to both airports in Cleveland and Akron-Canton.
Service School are free with the exception of your travel to Ohio, and any local transport from the hotel to our facility. The course, hotel stay (two nights), and food while you at the school are cover. Includes two breakfast meals, two lunches, and dinner on Thursday night.
We book the hotel for you and confirm the reservations for Wednesday and Thursday evenings. The hotel is about a 10-min drive from our facility, so having a vehicle is recommended as local taxi/Uber service is limited.
Please bring suitable work clothing and shoes/boots. The shop area used for hands-on training has limited heat/AC, so please check the Cleveland area weather at the time of your training and plan accordingly.
