Dedicated Training Facility
Our training facility is located just across the parking lot from our showroom and warehouse. It is important to us that we provide training that allows you to get a taste of what will be experienced on a job site or in a shop. All of our training courses are hands-on, NOT DEMOS, OR SITTING IN A CLASSROOM FOR HOURS. Most courses require a small fee to help cover costs, and we have found that if an attendee invests a bit of money they are more likely to show up for class! We provide training open to the public as well as private sessions customized to your companies needs.
