Facility and maintenance managers recognize the need for continued training to keep employees working at their best. Electrical, boiler, and HVAC technology changes rapidly, and employees who don’t receive regular training can quickly be left without the skills they need to do their jobs.

At TPC Trainco, we lead the industry with our intensive two to four-day onsite and live online seminars. Out of the many seminars we offer, five stand out as the most popular among both managers and staff. Each teaches practical skills students can begin to apply at work as soon as they finish the course. All five seminars are available as both on-site and live online courses.
