Volvo International Service Training Award, in short VISTA, is the largest service market competition in the world. It attracts thousands of skilled professionals within Volvo Trucks’ and Volvo Buses’ global service network – all competing to show their knowledge and skills in theoretical rounds and hands-on handling of our products.
While the core of VISTA is built around training, collaboration, and networking, it also shows that Service Market professionals play an important role and have a big impact on what customer appreciate most: first-rate service.
“Throughout 66 years, VISTA has developed to become a big part of our heritage and culture as well as an important Volvo Trucks strategic activity. Today VISTA is as important and relevant as ever, and it is crucial that we educate for the future and attract more skilled professionals to our service network”, says Roger Alm, President Volvo Trucks.
