About our Instructors:

"Real World Training...for Real World Needs" is not just our slogan, but also our mission statement. At American Trainco, we approach our students as if they were our own employees. We instruct them and guide them in practical knowledge that allows them to immediately go back to their workplace and apply what they have learned. Our instructors are seasoned veterans with years of real world experience, and the students who attend our seminars often get more from a single week of training than an entire year of reading textbooks or watching videos. How do we know? They tell us.

Anyone can teach theory, but there simply is no substitute for experience. What sets American Trainco apart is our ability to communicate that experience into the brains of our students. As one attendee told us at the end of his two-day training course, "I think I can go back to work now and teach the veterans a thing or two."

Mission Accomplished.

All American Trainco instructors are required to have a formal education and real world work experience. They need to be leaders in their field. We don't hire field people without teaching experience, and we don't hire teachers without field experience. They must have both. And since attendees critique the instructor at the end of each class, a positive and enjoyable learning experience is virtually guaranteed.
