    I think it's dealer invite only. I've always wanted to attend myself.

    While FAST school is dealer only,it is also up to the dealer who he sends,meaning if you have a pretty strong relationship with your dealer you may get him to throw your name on the form,i've heard of dealers doing this for some of their "bigger" commercial customers.Seating is limited at these schools so his guys are always going first.
    On a similar note,once again if you know the dealer fairly well,ask if you could hang out during a storm,90% of my repairs are done with the customer standing right there as i explain whats going on,can't really beat that either.

    Read the mechanics manual and pull apart a plow and pump and then put it back together. Best way to learn is do it yourself. I have talked to some techs and they are helpless sometimes.

    :nod: That is sooo true, I've had conversations with a few "certified techs" myself, that hadn't a clue. One has to wonder if they weren't out toking it up with the quality control line instead of actually attending the classes. lol :laughing: . That's just bad, I should apologize....nahhhh.
