The new System Troubleshooting Day is available on select dates, covering troubleshooting and interfacing with other equipment. Created for system technicians, Hippotizer owners and rental companies, this course provides participants with everything they need to know about the complexities of integration, and how to troubleshoot and solve common server issues.

Participants have the option to take the entire 3-day Hippo School for $375 or simply take days of their choosing such as Projects & Mapping Technology Training for $150. The separate System Troubleshooting Day is also offered for $150. To ensure focused hands-on training, class size is limited to two participants per machine at a total of 12 people; therefore, pre-registration is necessary.
