Valley University Nominated for National Global Learning Award | by Kelly Schultze

Valley University is Valley® Irrigation’s go-to resource for dealership training and development. Our goal is to gather and share knowledge of Valley products and practices to help dealerships around the world increase their expertise in sales, service, and aftermarket parts. 

Valley University has grown from serving domestic dealerships to serving dealerships in 34 countries, with training courses available in five different languages.

In the last six months, we have increased our international course availability and user growth exponentially. It is thanks to these efforts that the Valley University team has become a finalist in the Chief Learning Officer® 2014 Learning in Practice awards in the Global Learning category.

Our team is dedicated to providing all of our dealerships with the most up-to-date information to assist them in their daily operation. From pivot construction to seasonal maintenance, from the United States to South Africa, it is our goal to educate and assist Valley dealerships around the world, so we continuously grow and improve together.

Other finalists in the 2014 Learning in Practice award for Global Learning include Hewlett-Packard, MetLife, Western Union, Marriott International, and the U.S. Department of State, Foreign Service Institute. 

The awards will be announced during the Chief Learning Officer Symposium, Oct. 6-8. Wish us luck!
