Our train-the-trainer program gives companies the strategies and tactics to train well across all employee skill levels. Our program helps you:

  • Maximize productivity
  • Enhance safety
  • Increase machinery efficiency
  • Lower operating costs and reduce waste
  • Provide clear documentation


Service technicians, service and training managers, maintenance technicians, internal trainers, line supervisors, and any employee tasked with training fellow employees or customers


The Certified Trainer program begins with a 2-day workshop, including:

  • Build the case for training—Case study/project analysis,and the cost of unreliable equipment
  • Begin with the end in mind—The training stages of the project, develop the training budget, assess needs, build a partnership agreement, and develop a training plan
  • Installation and onsite training basics—Training partnerships,scheduling and logistics, training documentation, and job aids
  • Training techniques—Teaching the adult learner, the 4-step training process, performance checks, and recognition
  • Follow-up and reinforcement—Identify the training/learning gaps, develop a follow-up plan, define role of internal trainers,and measure performance goals


The workshop is just the beginning. PMMI Certified Trainers stay on top of their game through virtual training, eLearning courses, and online resources, such as easy-to-use templates. Plus, they receive the guidance and support of a community of training experts.
