Technician Training

We realize that time is precious in our industry thats why before we start any training we perfer to do an accessment of technical knowledge precededing any instruction in order to maximize learning potential. Our findings are that many technicians have different technical competences so by starting each one at different stages of our program allows techniciains with more experience and trade knowledge not to be focused on the basics rather spend necessary time on advanced portions while at the same time not leaving behind the less experienced technicians that require the basics in order to build a strong foundation.
