Our History: Industrial Training School
Industrial Training School came about after a long history of training starting in the late 1970's when our founder experienced the joys of sharing through instruction. He excelled in training by taking real world applications from his own experiences and applying them in the workplace. By 1983, I was instructing inspectors to prepare for their National Boiler of Boilers and Pressure Vessel Inspectors examines while at the Hartford Steam Boiler's New York Branch Office and started instructing inspector on topics of electrical and machinery.
In 1999, our founder formed AIS Accident Inspection Specialists, Inc. where he applied the lessons from accident investigations (omega to alpha) and began teaching courses under the name AIS Technical Training. With a rich history of experience in failures, risks, and the practical knowledge gained from the field coupled with regulatory industry codes like ASME B&PV and ASME Piping Codes he started providing courses to Corporations and Government.
By 2009, our founder established a separate non-profit educational school called AIS Technical Training School to compliment AIS, and from the non-profit, "Industrial Training School" was established to fulfill our founder's training vision that began decades ago of watching people learn and witness their expressions when they "got it!"
