Dan Thomsen, eastern regional manager for Doosan Infracore Portable Power, recently presented an educational program on generators and power distribution at the American Rental Association of Florida RenTech. This year's program was held at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, FL.
RenTech is an ARA-sponsored educational program designed to provide training for rental professionals.
"These RenTech programs, which are offered by ARA in conjunction with our state, local and provincial associations, are very popular with our members," said Alysia Ryan, director of state, local and provincial services at ARA. "They allow rental store owners, managers and employees to receive vital education and training from ARA associate members, such as Doosan Infracore Portable Power, close to home. It's a win-win for all involved."
Thomsen co-instructed, alongside Kent McLemore of Trystar, the session on generators and power distribution.
Two other concurrent sessions spotlighted different aspects of the rental business. One session was aimed at owners and managers, focusing on insurance, OSHA regulations, disaster contingency and hazardous waste management. Another session provided training and expertise on tent installation.
This is the second year Florida's ARA chapter has conducted RenTech. Other state ARA chapters will hold RenTech programs later this year. For registration and information visit www.ararental.org.
