Garmin Training Goes Online through June 2021
Garmin has released its training schedule through June 2021, and all classes and training delivery will be done in “an entirely virtual learning format,” according to the Olathe, Kansas-based avionics manufacturer. “This new format will allow customers to receive valuable product knowledge without concerns over travel and social distancing,” the company said.
Customers can opt for new instructor-led courses that feature scenario-based training, as well as self-study e-learning, iPad and PC training software, and monthly webinars. Garmin products available for training in iPad simulator versions include the GTN/GTN Xi series and GNX 375, GNC 355/355A, and GPS 175 navigators. PC trainers are available for some integrated avionics systems.
The instructor-led courses are available for the GTN series, GTN plus TXi displays, G3X Touch, and G500/G600 flight displays, G1000/G1000 NXi systems, and GWX aviation weather radar. Pilots can self-study with e-learning courses on the GTNs, TXi, G1000 NXi, G3000/G5000, and GWX weather radars. A special “Plus” course is available to add G5000 autothrottle operations.
The monthly webinars are free and cover scenario-based training for various products, including one on accident mitigation pilot training. Garmin’s pilot guides for retrofit avionics are also free.
