Creating Lifetime Loyalty — Ingersoll Rand
Student Program

For the professional technician, a set of reliable, hard-hitting tools is essential to maximize productivity. For the ever-money-saving student, high-quality tools may be out of range. Luckily, we, at Ingersoll Rand, provide a very highly discounted student program geared toward the student and instructor.

Shaping the minds of students becomes second nature to instructors. Students rely on their instructor's advice, decision making, and experience in order to gain insight and practice in the vocational field. Operating an Ingersoll Rand air tool during a tire-changing demonstration can be extremely influential to the naïve student. We offer both students and instructors of automotive, technical and vocational schools an exceptional student program.
