Commissioned technicians are paid for all training, whether it is in-house or at an offsite location. The minimum payment is the agreed-upon hourly rate, if a technician is over 100% efficient then they are paid this amount. Offsite training is based on per day average and all expenses are paid. In addition, we also have created a number of internal training paths (Technician Career Pathway) to sharpen and develop the necessary skills to succeed.

Mentoring with a senior technician is dependent on the individual. We believe in training and a stepping stone for a qualified entry-level technician is a partnership with a Senior Master.
