  • Develops an individual training plan for each employee that meets company budget and objectives
  • Scheduled classes throughout the year to accommodate the client’s needs
  • Tracks each employee’s progress in attaining their individual training goals
  • Notifies management of employees who fail to meet proficiency requirements
