Training Videos

It is very important to maximize your training investment in any economic climate. It may be more critical to train your employees in a downturn to capture every dollar of profit; but the challenge remains that budgets are reduced in a downturn. So how can we assure that our employees have the core competency skills to maximize profits at a reduced cost.One way is with training Videos.

We have build some introduction to the topics and place for free on U-Tube, as well as some safety videos. They can be found at;

Karl Kolmetz CPE Channel

The Advanced Videos can be purchased here for USD 499.95 each
