Enrollment for our basic training is available as a classroom option or online and is open to our members through the Ariel Members Only / Connect training portal.

Mechanics Hands-on Factory Training

Our core approach to hands-on training embodies just that. Our experienced instructors don't just show you how – we expect our students to get their hands dirty. As the original equipment manufacturer, we know the best ways to train field technicians to maintain and repair Ariel equipment. From our smallest to largest frames, factory-trained students receive the knowledge and skills needed to succeed as a compressor service technician.

Our experts from various engineering teams lead the Technical School with discussions about product and package components, and theory. The primary focus is using the Ariel7 performance software to size and optimize any Ariel compressor.
