Experience, Realized

"Over two decades ago I was teaching a class in Salt Lake City, Utah. One of my students, a teacher from a technical college in northern California, was so impressed with my training “system” that he asked if I would make a duplicate of it for him. I did, and the rest is history! Today, you will find my hydraulic training systems in the USA, Canada, Australia, Africa, Asia, South America, and Saudi Arabia ... It is also the number one choice for Corporate Technical Training Centers.

FPTI™ is the fastest growing fluid power training systems provider in the world - ask any teacher who uses our system, or any student who has attended our workshops. There's nothing else like it."
