Our Approach to Maintenance Training
Our ability to train technicians on essential maintenance topics in just two to four days is the foundation of our success. We’re able to deliver measurable skill gains in a short time because we focus on real-world scenarios and practical knowledge that our students can immediately apply at their facility.
What makes our training approach different?
Tailored content — Our live instruction format encourages students to discuss the needs and equipment in their own workplace, allowing tailored feedback from the instructor.
Industry expertise — From electrical training to facility management, our team of more than 60 expert instructors earns high marks from our students for the deep field experience they bring to each training class.
Hands-on participation — We employ hands-on demonstrations using real-life equipment, engage in classroom discussions about each attendee’s unique on-the-job challenges, and utilize interactive class activities to deliver an engaging, interactive session that increases practical skill acquisition.
Measurable outcomes — Our optional testing and certification allow you to assess training needs and outcomes, and can be used toward continuing education credits.
Unbiased education — Unlike many other training classes, ours are independent and commercially unbiased, with a total focus on delivering a high-impact learning experience.
Our Expert Instructors
Our team of over 60 field-experienced instructors is the backbone of our training schedule, from HVAC certification and maintenance to PLC courses. Together they’ve logged more than 200,000 hours in the classroom — by far the deepest experience in the industry.
All of our instructors must meet three core requirements:
1. Relevant formal education in the course topic area
2. Documented hands-on work experience in their area
3. Specific experience as a maintenance training instructor
Many of our instructors’ credentials extend even further, including experience as authors, speakers, and industry organization board members within their fields of expertise. And they stay current on technology and industry trends through their own ongoing education, field visits, and peer review meetings.
The result of our emphasis on instructor quality is a consistently high standard of delivery across all of our 2000+ annual training classes. Workers leave our classes ready to apply what they’ve learned to make an immediate impact at their jobs.
Interested students and companies can contact us at 1-877-978-7246 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about specific instructors.

TPC Training’s curriculum is designed to provide complete coverage of essential industrial maintenance skills, across a full range of electrical training, HVAC, plant management, and mechanical & industrial topics. Our “see, touch, do” instructional approach allows us to impart practical skills in an intensive format.
Our curriculum is built on the expertise of our instructors, allowing us to condense volumes of research, content, and experience into our typical two-day format while ensuring that every critical topic gets proper attention.
But the most vital part of our training format is our personal approach that goes beyond the course outline. Our small class sizes allow each instructor to tailor the course to address students’ individual needs, concerns, and experience levels. Our instructors deliver content with hands-on exercises, demonstrations, role-playing, visuals, and case study discussions.
Students also receive reference materials in simple laminated charts, instructor notes, or course manuals to help them continue to use what they learn. For most courses, students or supervisors can purchase optional study guides for testing or further reference.
Testing & Certification
Our optional ATMT® testing and certification sets the standard for measuring maintenance worker knowledge. Employers can use it to assess training needs prior to training,measure training outcomes, or as documentation for a qualified electrical worker program or other internal safety/training program. Individuals use our testing and certification to demonstrate knowledge to a current or potential employer.
These exams are not designed to only test knowledge learned in a TPC Training course! Created as a standalone product to be used with or without out training courses, these exams are slightly broader in theoretical scope and require self-study. We recommend students review the associated study guide before taking an exam.
Our exams can be done online or on paper. The paper exam can be taken in a proctored or non-proctored setting. If you are interested in taking the paper test in a proctored setting, a manager or supervisor at your company must apply to become a proctor with TPC Training. Please contact the Testing Department for more information on the proctor application process.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
Upon completion of this course, the student will receive a three-star certification of completion showing 8 classroom hours (.8 TPC Training CEUs) per day attended. Most employers and many government agencies accept TPC Training CEUs to fulfill their continuing education requirements.
If an attendee needs CEUs to renew a STATE LICENSE, please contact the Testing Department before registering to ensure the appropriate state licensing board has approved the course for continuing education. We may require additional information, such as the licensee’s license number or home address, to be able to submit their hours to the state.
If the licensee’s state licensing board does not currently accept this training toward license renewal, we are happy to submit an application for approval as long as we have received the request at least one month before the training date. We will stay in close communication with the licensee up to the training date to make sure either the course is approved before attending or they transfer out of the class without penalty.
