Always On: Vanguard® University Offers Expert Training

This year, companies across the globe rushed to develop virtual platforms to connect with their customers. Here at Vanguard, we thought of that years ago.

In 2018, we launched Vanguard University — a virtual space for us to share knowledge with our dealers, OEMs and potential customers. With 13 easy-to-follow engine and battery training courses, Vanguard University provides the most up-to-date and accurate information on our products and innovations. 

We’re proud to announce that since the launch of Vanguard University 6,046 courses have been successfully completed. That’s 6,046 times a dealer, distributor or customer has gained valuable innovation, engine and battery training on how to get the most out of their Vanguard power solution. Plus, we sent one lucky user to Jamaica and have awarded Amazon gift cards and Apple Airpods through our Vanguard University Sweepstakes.

Here’s what a few Vanguard University scholars have to say: 

  • “I appreciate the dedication to timely and easily accessed training. Vanguard is definitely ahead of the competition.” – Scott Eichelberger (Nick’s Farm Store CO Manager)
  • “This was definitely something that every dealership needs to take time to understand. Thank you very much!” – John Richards (Southern Sales & Rental)
  • "The training is well laid out and covers the features of the engine that customers are concerned with.”  - Steve Staley (Territory Sales & Service Manager)
  • “The biggest thing I took from the courses was a deeper understanding of the new products, which I’ve used to help educate customers,” Ricky Meloche, service manager at Able Lawnmower Sales & Service in Greenacres, Florida, and the lucky winner of the Power to Paradise contest. 

You can access Vanguard University at or learn more about our products and innovations through the Vanguard Resource Center.
