What we do
The Peterson brothers develop your teams by teaching the hard skills required to do their technical jobs, the soft skills to effectively share that knowledge with others, and ultimately building a culture that attracts and retains the best technicians the workforce has to offer.
Why we do it
Is your downtime cost still frustrating your plans for growth? Are you trying to justify expensive, week-long Manufacturer training that your techs only need one day of?
These questions are the reason we started our company. Our work in this field has given us experience in the problems we are looking to solve. We’ve been hit with those downtime costs. We’ve watched good employees walk out the door because they couldn’t be challenged and grow.
No matter the industry or field, the best training is specific to the facility and the tasks which the technicians are likely to see. Our programs take your excellent team and make them better.
Don’t live with a culture and team that only do enough to survive. We call this the “Bare Minimum Mentality.” Give your technicians quality training so that they can always be able to deliver 110%.
