Houston Industrial Training Institute
We are a privately-owned Nevada-based company. Our principals have been in the industrial training business since 1993, and have provided industrial training materials and services to many of the Fortune 500 companies.
We provide technical training programs for a wide variety of disciplines including pocess industry operators, maintenance technicians. In addition we provide training services for a diverse group of industries, including water and wastewater, pulp and paper, petrochemical plants, power plants, etc. We also provide high quality short Continuous Education courses for many engineering and other disciplines.
Our focus is the achievement of "technical competence" through traditional as well as highly innovative methods. The traditional methods include production of paper-based training manuals and the innovative methods include application of animations and simulations in the training materials.
We developed the first ever microcomputer-based commercial operator training. That was in 1985. Since then, we've maintained our lead in the production of low-cost PC-based industrial training simulators.
We are living in an era that is defined by :
a. Ever-changing safety, health and environmental regulations
b. Rapidly changing technology
c. Ever-increasing globalization
We believe that it is difficult for traditional technical training methodologies and venues to keep pace with the new world. To face this challenge, new training methods must be developed and deployed.
Houston Industrial Training Institute is committed to development of new training methodologies that are characterized by :
a. Broad availability: The training programs shall be equally available to urban and rural trainees, as long as they have access to the Internet.
b. Broad access: The training programs shall be equally available to presently employed or unemployed people. The training programs shall allow the trainees to participate in their own time and at their own pace.
c. Accelerated learning: The training programs shall be designed to allow delivery of high quality training processes in a relatively short amount of time, usually a fraction of the time required for traditional programs.
d. Competence focus: The training programs shall focus on the creation of competence rather than as a vehicle for information dumping.
e. Cost-Effectiveness: The training programs shall be designed to provide low-cost training solutions for the masses.
