The facility will provides technical vehicle knowledge, dealer operations training and provides customers with exclusive access to expert training. The Hayward location will also support battery-electric vehicle (BEV) training efforts for the companies, supplying programs for company employees, technicians, dealer sales staff and aftermarket personnel, as well as owner-operators and fleet customers.


Classes at the training facility will begin the first week of June and gradually build toward a 50-week schedule. Training courses will be focused on BEV safety, operation, and repair, as well as engine overhaul, transmission design and function, parts sales, and warranty fundamentals.

With the addition of the Hayward facility, Volvo and Mack now have six locations in North America, including Atlanta, Georgia; Grand Prairie, Texas; Hagerstown, Maryland; Joliet, Illinois; and Toronto, Canada.
