Real Hands-On Training

Ninety percent of people prefer hands-on over learning lectures. Research studies have shown that information learned by normal lecture style environment results in retention of only 25 percent while learning hands-on is up to 75 percent retention. One of the many benefits of hands-on training is that participants will engage in actual repairs on our custom training models. hands-on also allows the use of the correct tools and understanding of correct and safe repair procedures.

Small Group Training

Class sizes are limited in design to allow for a more personalized experience. Sessions are generally under 30 participants that break into smaller groups of ten or less to allow all participants hands-on training with each custom training model.
