Las Vegas Training Facility
« on: May 13, 2013, 01:44 PM »
I'm curious to understand how the training facility in Vegas works. On the Festool USA website there is only one class listed and it's full, does the place sit vacant for the rest of the year or am I missing something? What goes on in this training facility when there is no training offered?  ???

The training website (festooltraining.com) only shows future classes and their status. Classes for end users are generally added to the schedule quarterly.

The training facilities are primarily used for Festool dealer training, which you will not see listed. There are also other events that are hosted at the training facilities.

Our trainers also travel the country to dealer locations for regional training, to tradeshow events, assist sometimes at the new road school events, etc.

So, there's a lot you don't see. I expect that Steve will add some new end user classes for Vegas in the coming days or weeks.

I should mention that end user classes generally fill VERY VERY quickly. We posted five classes this morning for Indy and they were all full in a little over an hour.

Well I'm subscribed to the e-mail notifications for training at festoolusa website, hopefully those e-mails go out immediately when a class is posted.

Do not hesitate signing up.

The last class I got into I was at my daughters soccer practice and I heard the incoming email sound on my IPhone. I was talking to a guy and said Oh Snap and registered right there at the field. When we got home about 40 mins later the class was full.

gotta be quick remember people all over the country want to take a class and there are only 6 spaces available.

BTW Steve said they are revamping some of the end user classes. They have some new classes in works. They sounded awesome.

The Farm Table class is brand new and the first group is going through it later this week.

Expect to see new classes added for the Vegas training center in the next week or so probably for the June-August time frame roughly.
