A BIG thanks goes out to the fellas from Southire Tools and Products.  We had over 30 guys get trained on the latest Southwire conduit and wire products.  It is a competitive market out there, only with the most current training and knowledge will we get the contracts and make our bids.  Thanks for coming in and bettering ourselves.

If you are interested in seeing the new MB1000 Bending Table, come on in and check it out.  One hell of a product I would say!

2015 NTI

We just got back from Ann Arbor, MI and the Electrical Training ALLIANCE’s National Training Institute (NTI).  This is the annual gathering of Instructors, Directors and support personal from the nation’s best JATC’s.  This year our instructors attended training on Hands on Labs for AC Theory and Power Quality and Concepts in Foremanship.  These are two great subjects that we are excited to bring back to our program.

A big thanks goes out to Fluke and their support of the labs and demonstrations.  It was great to play with the big meters and see it all come together.
