Heavy Equipment Training Center

We are a full-time, fully-staffed, heavy equipment training facility located in Lansing, Michigan.  We train year-round on utility and construction equipment operation and repair. Though AIS is an equipment distributor, we offer operator training on all makes and models. The technician training offers generalized programs that include: hydraulics, electrical, engine, and power trains that have universal application across all manufacturer's models.

In addition to manufacturer, operator, and technician training, we offer a wide variety of customized heavy equipment training courses. Training can begin with students as early on as high school. Because our courses offer so much hands-on training, we conduct programs at branches around the state of Michigan. Currently, we are educating as many as 180 students a day in our heavy equipment repair and operations program. These emerging technicians have become a valuable resource of talent for AIS as well as to our industry as a whole.

The Training Center also offers heavy equipment repair classes and operator training programs through Lansing Community College. At this point students can earn a certificate from AIS or an Associate’s degree from LCC.
