Training Modules

Our video training consists of Suites that address a subject or job responsibility.  Each Suite consists of individual lessons, called Modules.  Currently, our available Suites are:

  • Training for Manufacturing Engineers
  • Training for Adcole Operators and Programmers
  • Training for Maintenance Personnel

Scheduled Modules for each Suite are listed below and more will be added.  As modules are added they will appear in bold typeface, followed by the video.   Complete suites, on DVD, will be available after the introductory period.  Until then, you can take advantage of the early pricing, shown on our “Pricing” page.

Each module teaches a concept or task and takes less then 10 minutes to complete. You do not need any prior experience with the product and modules need not be followed in any particular order.

Note: Some modules apply to more than one category and may be repeated where relevant.
