“Our employees see training as a commitment from us to help them execute in their jobs. Three things make up a business: tools, processes, and people. You can’t invest in tools and processes and forget to invest in people. It’s an important part of the triangle.”

— Dr. Fred Cotaras, Chief Technology Director for Maritime Systems, Ultra Electronics.

“My most recent experience with Javelin was through the Javelin online live training (JOLT). I’ve taken online training before and was somewhat skeptical, but this was different. The ability to talk to the instructor and hear other student’s questions and comments was terrific.”

— Kyle Swain, Mechanical Designer, Vemco.
