We know that your team’s performance is mission-critical. That’s why we advocate for training and education that allows your team to operate and maintain your fleet to the highest standards in the industry.

Product Orientation

After delivery of your new vehicle, Golden State provides a series of orientation videos to familiarize your personnel in the basic operation of the apparatus and its components. We provide clear documentation and manuals for your team’s future reference.

Continuing education

Our partners at Pierce Manufacturing provide hands-on maintenance classes to help you stay educated. Due to space limitations in our dedicated classroom, book your team as early as possible to reserve your spot.


We are proud members of the Northern California Fire Mechanics Association. The NCFMA’s mission is to establish education and certification for the people who maintain and repair emergency vehicles and equipment. We host events each year, provide Pierce instructors and sponsor part of the training that allows mechanics and firefighters to maintain their fire apparatus with a high level of skill.
