Tech Skills International (TSI) is an independent provider of technical skill and knowledge assessments and certification for industrial maintenance technicians. Their assessments are not specific to any brand or manufacturer of industrial manufacturing equipment. This assures that technicians with a TSI certification can competently perform their tasks on all brands and types of modern manufacturing and production equipment.

 

TSI maintains a design and development group that provides custom training solutions. These training programs provide the perfect fit for improving overall plant performance.

 

Take a look at the systems they have designed:

 

 

TSI also offers a Plant-Tech Training course.  The program is designed to produce trained technicians having the hands-on skill sets to keep the plant up and running.
Plant-Tech Trained technicians are “plant-floor ready” and require only local plant orientation.  Read more about the Plant-Tech Training course.
