Hands-On Application


Interactive training that is specific to your company’s process is always preferred but interrupting production to test your new knowledge is probably not an option. This is where the newest addition to our Training & Development Solutions, The Functional Verification Unit – THE UNIT, comes into play.

Join us for a technical training course at our Houston Training Center and test your knowledge in THE UNIT by completing lab scenarios. Having issues in production that you need to work through? Schedule some time in THE UNIT with one of our technical resources to mimic your specific process conditions, test, and troubleshoot.

  • Fully Functional Live Unit
  • Duplicate Process Conditions
  • Solve Issues

  • Process Specific Training in A Controlled Environment
