SENNEBOGEN Training Is FREE & Accessible for Dealers, ASPs & Customers

You invested in SENNEBOGEN because you wanted a machine that was safe, efficient, and simple. A little bit of support never hurt anyone, either. 

We’ve got your back. In fact, our dependability goes way beyond your initial purchase. 

We want you to learn everything there is to know about your SENNEBOGEN machine. That’s why we made our Operator Familiarization Training available to all of our customers—for free.

Discover more about the SENNEBOGEN Training Center, who is eligible to enroll in these courses, and what you could learn.


If you're not local to our North Carolina facility, you can still get your crew trained on your new machine with our Operator Familiarization Training, conducted by SENNEBOGEN Tree Care Specialist Cameron Kuklick.



What Is the SENNEBOGEN Training Center?

SENNEBOGEN has a dedicated training facility within driving distance of many dealers and customers. The space is fully equipped with instructors, classrooms, and demonstration areas in Stanley, N.C.

The main bay allows for hands-on access to full-size machines from three levels, including an elevated gallery. This means almost any SENNEBOGEN machine can be brought indoors, including an 870 M. 



SENNEBOGEN instructors are highly qualified specialists in material-handling equipment and applications. They combine practical field experience with years of instructional expertise, as well as the most current technical information.

Our meeting rooms and classrooms all have computer networking and projection technology required for interactive instruction methods. Trainees can focus on fixing technical issues with SENNEBOGEN equipment and prepare themselves for real-life situations and mishaps.

By the end of their uninterrupted training, SENNEBOGEN students have been fully immersed in their selected topic, know how to find answers to technical problems, and can make the necessary repairs in the field.


Who Is Eligible for SENNEBOGEN Training?

SENNEBOGEN training was originally set up for dealers so they would have the knowledge and ability to repair equipment for customers. Since then, we’ve extended access to customers and Authorized Service Providers – for free.

We know the more information a trainee has, the better decision they can make it when it comes to working on SENNEBOGEN equipment.

It's a big decision to invest in a SENNEBOGEN, and we want to make sure you're fully equipped to get the most out of your tree care handler.
