Cot Care

Your equipment works hard, and proper upkeep is necessary to help it perform better and last longer. FERNO Cot Care, a hands-on training program, is designed to help you reduce maintenance costs for FERNO cots, stair chairs, and fasteners. Conducted at the FERNO facilities in Wilmington, Ohio, or onsite at your agency, the Cot Care program teaches your staff how to properly operate, inspect, clean, and do field repairs for FERNO equipment.

Cot Care Training Program

Cot Care Repair and Maintenance Program

The two to three-day Cot Care Repair Program provides an overview of FERNO manufacturing, liability concerns, injury prevention, proper cot operation, inspections, trouble-shooting, and documentation. Participants will perform a tear-down and reassembly of your agency’s specific FERNO equipment. 


Training includes participant evaluation and testing, 2-year certification and access to part manuals, technical drawings, ongoing critical updates, and a certificate of completion.  The Cot Care program is $2,500.00 for the first 3 participants and $500.00 for each additional participant.  The certification is owned by the specific customer and trained technicians are only certified as long as they are employed with that specific customer/owner of the equipment. 

Airfare, meals, lodging, transportation, and other travel expenses are not included.
