John Deere has completed the construction of its new facility in Coal Valley, Illinois. The 696m2 facility is part of the Construction & Forestry Training Campus and includes three classrooms that can be used separately for training purposes, or combined to hold over 250 people for larger events.

In addition, there is nearly 4000 square feet of covered canopy space for outdoor training and equipment walk-arounds.
“The primary function of this new facility is to provide much-needed additional classroom space for dealer sales staff and technician training,” said David Reilly, manager, worldwide training, John Deere Construction & Forestry.
“Training is a core part of our program, but beyond that, the C&F Coal Valley Training Campus also hosts other important events throughout the year.”
The facility will also include a John Deere simulator – further bridging the gap between the classroom and jobsite. Onsite events include customer-specific activities where they can demo equipment and interact with John Deere experts.
