The Equipment & Engine Training Council is pleased to announce the addition of Briggs & Stratton’s Training Kits and Curriculum to the online EETC Education Resources Web Site.
Tom Billigen, Briggs & Stratton Customer Education Training Manager, commented that, “the need for hands on, experience-based training is becoming increasingly important to schools and the communities they serve. Working with the EETC and its membership to provide that support makes sense.”
Briggs & Stratton educational materials will appear on the EETC site beginning in June. Erik Sides, EETC’s Executive Director, said, “being able to offer a broader array of training options through our web site has been one of my primary goals since taking on this position in January 2013. Adding Briggs’ curriculum to the site gives members access to another proven training resource.”
