“Orca Elite” Training, October 5-9, for Experts Only

Latest collaboration with Mobile Solutions to target advanced-level fabricators and technicians

CAMARILLO, CALIF., September 10, 2018 (MEDIAWIRE) –Orca Design and Manufacturing, in conjunction with installation training facility Mobile Solutions, will sponsor an advanced-level training in its final session of 2018, October 5-9. "Orca Elite" will welcome a select group of technicians from qualifying authorized Orca retailers who have attended at least one of the previous sessions. The purpose of Orca Elite is to provide an enhanced level of fabrication training intended for highly experienced fabricators.

Orca has held four sponsored sessions to date, all at the Mobile Solutions headquarters in Tempe, Ariz. Orca pays for class admission and accommodations for the duration, and supplies equipment and components used in the class vehicle project builds. Attendees leave with a completed class project showcasing their skill, as well as knowledge that leads to higher quality work and more efficient job performance.

In addition to Mobile Solutions President and Lead Fabricator Bryan Schmitt, class instructors for the Orca Elite session include four Installers of the Year: Tom Miller, Chris Pate, Matt Schaffer and Juan Torres. Joining them will be current and multi-time Top 12 Installer Sage Weir. Among other activities, the instructors will split attendees into two teams. Each will build a premium subwoofer enclosure to complement the tower speakers that were built during last year’s competition. The projects, as well as past project vehicles, will be shown at the upcoming KnowledgeFest show and education conference in Long Beach, Calif., February 23-25 at the Long Beach Convention Center.

"When we started the partnership with Mobile Solutions, our goal was to raise the skill level of our dealers so they could represent and install our products with confidence and creativity," said Nalaka Adikari, sales director for Orca. "So far we've had four sessions and we have already seen vast improvements in the work and self-esteem of the attendees, so we consider this collaboration a successful investment. In this final session of the year we will cater to those who have achieved a higher level of expertise and go beyond everything we've taught before."

Invitees will be notified individually. For more information, contact your authorized Orca sales representative.
