This means that our trainers did not simply take the right classes, read the handbook, and step into a training position. Our trainers have real world experience coming out of 20+ years in various manufacturing fields. This guarantees that our students have the absolute best hands-on training available paired with real world knowledge from experienced trainers to take with them into their fields.
