John Deere recently completed the construction of a 7,500 sq. ft. facility in Coal Valley, Ill., to better meet internal training demands, along with supporting customer visits and events. The building is part of the Construction & Forestry Training Campus and includes three classrooms that can be used separately for training purposes, or combined to hold more than 250 people for larger events. In addition, there is nearly 4,000 sq. ft. of covered canopy space for outdoor training and equipment walkarounds.

"The primary function of this new facility is to provide much-needed additional classroom space for dealer sales staff and technician training," said David Reilly, manager, worldwide training, John Deere Construction & Forestry. "Training is a core part of our program, but beyond that, the C&F Coal Valley Training Campus also hosts other important events throughout the year."

There is nearly 4,000 sq. ft. of covered canopy space for outdoor training and equipment walkarounds.

The facility also will include a John Deere simulator — further bridging the gap between the classroom and job site. Onsite events include customer-specific activities where they can demo equipment and interact with John Deere experts.

"With this new facility customers and dealers can walk out of the classrooms and directly into the demonstration area," said Tim Hilton, manager, demonstration sites, John Deere Construction & Forestry. "We're excited to share this new experience with dealers, technicians, customers, and media."
