Manitou's training offer

Manitou Group University (MGU) offers technical and sales training courses for its network of authorized dealers. These courses are designed to help Manitou technicians and salespeople develop their skills through innovative and creative learning methods, both face-to-face and virtual learning. More than 5,000 learners and trainees improve their know-how every year thanks to Manitou training courses.

An innovative range of technical training courses

Developing knowledge is essential during one's career to meet the changing needs of customers and to be able to adapt to changes. Aware of this issue, Manitou Group has specially developed a training offer for its machine users and technicians. The main foundation of these courses is based on 4 main areas of expertise: use, maintenance, diagnosis and repair of machines.

The Manitou training offer is aimed at all authorized dealers and key account customers in an international scope. The Manitou Group's Training Center has also been ISO 9001 certified since June 2019.

In order to develop the talents of the trainees and increase their skills, our training courses can be customized to their needs: At the beginning all new technicians in the network take equivalency tests. At the end of the tests, they receive training specially adapted to their level of qualification, capable of both increasing their knowledge and enhancing their existing know-how.

Manitou's learning methods are distinguished by their innovative character. Our creative teaching methods are delivered in various methods. 

  • In our training centers or at our customers' location,
  • Through a distance (Virtual Training Room)
  • Video tutorials available on MGU (Manitou Group University).

Part of the training is accessible via e-learning tools (online training modules combining videos and tutorials). Combined with digital modules, technical documentation is used to support the content of the courses. To encourage the circulation of knowledge, Manitou Group University then offers technicians who have already been trained the opportunity to become referents in their respective dealerships.
