Technical Training

A systematic approach to developing a highly-skilled workforce

The future of technical learning is changing more rapidly than anyone had previously imagined. And with so many new tools and technologies available for absorbing technical learning, tomorrow’s learners have a significant advantage over those of the past. From chatbots to touchscreens to photorealistic and dimensionally immersive virtual reality simulations, technical learners of the future will enjoy advanced learning in all areas of their jobs.

Few industries have more specialized and challenging technical training needs than aerospace and defense.  Use of specialized machinery, fabrication of advanced materials and composites, and highly complex production processes require extensive training.

Complying with governmental, industry, and environmental regulations require stringent quality control and documentation procedures.  Technical employees require constant updates on their training to keep pace with new and ever more complex technologies. Meanwhile, managers struggle to source and implement the right technologies to effectively manage global training. Perhaps the biggest training challenge for most aerospace and defense companies is fulfilling these training requirements within a manageable budget.
