Rotax Service and Maintenance Courses

Postby BRCC » Tue Mar 07, 2017 1:33 pm

I am pleased to announce Blue Ridge Community College (Weyers Cave, VA) will be offering courses in Rotax Service and Maintenance for 9-Series this summer. The Service Class will be held 6-7 June 2017 and the Maintenance Class will be held 8-9 June 2017. The classes are taught by Dean Vogel from Lockwood Aviation. http://training.lockwood.aero/

Please call 540-453-2372 to register for Rotax Service/Maintenance classes or use the links to sign up online:
- Rotax Service Training (https://brcc.augusoft.net/index.cfm?met ... talog_id=0)
- Rotax Maintenance Training (https://brcc.augusoft.net/index.cfm?met ... talog_id=0)

Note: the Service Training class is a prerequisite to take the Maintenance Training class.
We have a maximum of 16 seats in the Service class and 12 seats in the Maintenance class.

Classes are taught at the Weyers Cave campus and labs are held at our hangar located at the Shenandoah Regional Airport (SHD).

For further information or questions please feel free to contact me.

Just a little bump for clarification, registration is open until the classes actually start (06 June: Service class, and 08 June: Maintenance class).

However, we need a minimum of six students enrolled 30 days prior in order to hold the classes.

I hope that makes sense. :D

Hi folks! Still have seats to fill. I'm surprised there hasn't been more discussion or inquiries regarding the class.

Any ideas why?

People like pictures. Here's Dean in the classroom from a previous year here at Blue Ridge Community College. Get the same course content and quality instruction minus Florida's June heat, humidity, and mosquitoes.

It was brought to my attention this morning that the class will also cover information on the 914.

We have met our minimum required number of students to hold the classes and it's a go!
I have received feedback that the online registration process is very frustrating. I spoke with the enrollment desk personnel and made them aware that I am going to recommend people register via phone. I'll post the link below where you can download the forms and also FAX or mail your applications.

Registration is open until the day before classes start.

Everyone have a safe and enjoyable weekend! :D
