IC Bus University Schedule for 2012 for the weeks of June 25th, July 9th, July 23rd, August 6th and August 20th

IC Bus, LLC is pleased to announce the expanded schedule for IC Bus University for 2012. John Thompson, Director of Training for IC Bus, said, “We are changing our time frames to better meet the needs of the school community by focusing our efforts more on the summer months.” Thompson went on to say, “this summer focus was at the request of our dealers and customers and we are announcing all sessions at one time so that potential attendees can pick the session that is best for them as all sessions are now open for registration.”
The host hotel for the sessions will be the Doubletree Hotel at Warren Place in Tulsa, OK. Thompson said, “We are pleased to be back at the Doubletree for these sessions. We think the Doubletree offers our attendees the best value at $85 dollars per night which includes a full breakfast”.
In addition to the expanded IC Bus University schedule, IC Bus, LLC is expecting to announce an Advanced IC Bus University in 2012. These classes will be limited to 8 attendees for each session, will last for three days and will focus on advanced diagnostics. Completion of the initial IC Bus University class will be a prerequisite for attending the Advanced IC Bus University. A full year’s schedule will be published at a later date for the advanced classes.
Registration for IC Bus University is accomplished on line through the Navistar Learning Management System but attendees must first obtain a voucher number through their IC Bus dealer. Cost for the class is $350 but participants in the IC Beyond program receive a 50% discount on this class fee.

IC Bus will supply lunch Monday through Friday of the week and all daily transportation from the host hotel to the IC Bus Training Center at the Tulsa Bus Plant as well as airport transportation on Friday of the week.
