CECO Training & Technical Services instructor–led training provides the knowledge, skill, and expertise needed to operate, maintain, and analyze the health and performance of your equipment.

Well organized classroom training courses provide in–depth learning. Where CECO’s printed workbooks and online learn center provide a simple solution to training needs, Instructor–led training provides the expertise and experience of CECO’s knowledgeable trainers. They are available to answer questions as they arise and guide instruction tailored to each client’s very specific needs. The benefits of a knowledgeable instructor bring great value to CECO’s training classes that printed workbooks and web–based training alone cannot provide.

We recognize no two companies are exactly alike and neither are your training needs. We will work with you to create a customized course that will satisfy specific training needs for your company.

You can choose to have one of our expert instructors lead the customized course or we can create a trainer’s kit to allow one of your own subject matter experts to lead the class. The trainer’s kit includes lesson plans, presentations and presenter’s notes, providing your SME with the necessary tools to teach the customized course.

Only have a few employees that need fundamental training? CECO partners with industry wide organizations to offer open enrollment courses throughout the year that will meet your needs.
