IMPORTANT TRAINING UPDATE: COVID-19

As Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to impact areas across the country, we are closely monitoring new developments. The health and safety of our customers and employees at Cervus is paramount, and therefore we are compelled to introduce precautions to help flatten the curve and reduce the spread of the virus. As such, we have decided to postpone all in-person classroom and jobsite training until further notice. Online training will be available as an option at a 25% discount until all regular classes resume.
 
Our branches remain open as all other support, parts, service, sales and administrative functions are unaffected by this temporary shutdown.  Please contact your local Cervus Equipment branch for further information.
