Two-Day Akkerman Factory Certified Guided Boring System Training

Register now for two days of Factory-Certified Guided Boring Equipment training at the new state-of-the-art D.H. Akkerman Training and Development Grounds in Brownsdale, MN. This training package, conducted by Akkerman’s field technicians, is comprised of hands-on instruction for pilot tube installation using our Model 240A Guided Boring System.

The training center, D.H. Akkerman Training and Development Grounds, pays homage to Maynard’s father, Don Akkerman, affectionately known as D.H. Don was a true innovator, initially establishing himself as a general contractor. His innovative spirit was born out of necessity, driving him to pioneer new approaches for project success. The decision to name the training center after him was a natural choice, reflecting his legacy of ingenuity and dedication to excellence.

This training program is ideal for pilot tube operators with new equipment purchases or seasoned veterans looking to test their skill on new equipment. We can customize operator training sessions for customers with specific training and equipment requirements upon request.

* Upon completion of the class attendees take a final exam to receive a factory certification and diploma.
