Husqvarna Breaks Out the Online Chalkboard and Takes Professionals to School
In October, Equip Expo saw record attendance, with nearly 30,000 journalists and Pros showing up in Kentucky to see what’s happening in the world of outdoor power equipment. Not surprisingly, the staff here at OPE Reviews flew in, too. We visited numerous booths, encountering a bonanza of gear currently on shelves or coming soon. This included equipment from the folks at Husqvarna. However, they have their hands in much more than zero-turns, string trimmers, and autonomous mowers. Indeed, they’ve recently launched the Husqvarna Pro Insider Program.
You’re probably wondering exactly what that is. Well, Husqvarna tells us that it’s a cutting-edge online learning management system. Specifically, it provides users with interactive learning opportunities for professional products and solutions.
Husqvarna Pro Insider Program: How It Works
Simply put, Husqvarna wants this initiative to foster engagement through web-based courses. In doing so, the Pro Insider Program leverages what they call Watch and Earn.
For every course completed, users earn coins that they can redeem for merchandise within the Husqvarna store. Each self-paced class is less than five minutes, making it easy for busy Pros like yourself to learn on your own schedules from anywhere.
What It Has
According to Husqvarna, the Pro Insider Program has options for commercial landscapers, tree care professionals, dealers, and enthusiasts of all levels. Apparently, it’s one of many online educational opportunities that Husqvarna offers, including the Chainsaw Academy and Husqvarna University .
For example, at the Chainsaw Academy, you’ll have access to information about a myriad of skills. There are step-by-step guides, animations, videos, checklists, and recommendations.
As a matter of fact, we recently had a taste of this in person during Husqvarna’s Spring product showcase event. We visited their headquarters in Charlotte, N.C., where we put their chainsaws to the test, learned from their in-house Pros, and, overall, had a great time.
So, if you’re a Pro looking to expand your knowledge and get free stuff, the online version might be worth looking into. You can get more info about the Husqvarna Pro Insider Program at training.husqvarna.com .
