Professionals from seven Asia Pacific countries attended the Ferretti Group’s recent training session in Singapore.

The Ferretti Group Service University returned to the Asia Pacific from July 6-10 in Singapore and more than 20 professionals from seven countries attended.

The professional training and refresher training course targeted service network operators and had attendees from China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand.

Last year’s first Asia Pacific service university was held in Hong Kong.

“In the over 25 Service University editions held since 2004 in the three geographical areas where our sales network is present, we have always recorded an increasing level of satisfaction among our partners’ local operators in terms of both quality and the usefulness of this experience,” Ferretti Group chief commercial officer Stefano De Vivo said in a statement.

“Indeed, thanks to the know-how and thorough information shared during the courses and the in-depth visits to our technical suppliers, our dealers can better meet the needs of our customers and fully convey the top quality of our yachts.”

Starting in the 1990s, Ferretti has organized training activities targeted at dealers and service points. In 2010 the group decided to add on-site activities in the Asia Pacific region and the Americas to existing Service University sessions in Europe.
