The training of our instructors is not limited to just what they have learned on the job. We send our instructors to the National Training Institute in Ann Arbor, MI. There they receive training from professional educators on how to create an excellent learning environment. They come away from this training having learned how to prepare themselves to teach and to provide their students with the best possible learning experience they can. This is a huge level of commitment from them and our apprentices are the beneficiaries of it.
