LISLE, Ill., Oct. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Navistar has launched the Navistar Service Essentials Program, a partnership program designed to help qualified technical schools prepare the next generation of truck and bus technicians.
"As we focus on growing customer Uptime, Navistar and our International® Truck and IC Bus® dealers are all committed to combating the industry's growing technician shortage," said Michael Cancelliere, Navistar president, Truck and Parts.
