Training Solutions

The best products and systems are useless unless your people possess the knowledge to use them effectively. Horizon offers extensive training options, from convenient online seminars to multi-day, hands-on, onsite courses.

Our trainers not only update your staff on the latest technology; they also show them how to apply our products in your environment for maximum efficiency, savings, and productivity.

Seminars. Your people can train at our location in the operation and maintenance of just about every type of product we supply. Each 2- or 3-hour session may feature hands-on workshops, and can highlight technical details of PLCs, cutting tools, drives, motion control, safety, energy conservation, and similar subjects. Some seminars feature an informal breakfast or lunch where you can network with peers and talk with Horizon staff. For our contractor customers, we also offer early-morning or evening events, which won’t interrupt critical workflows.

Technical training. This 1-day or 2-day format typically zeroes in on a specific product and its application in your facility. Hands-on workshops are a vital feature. Through our world-class partners, Horizon can also offer a host of accredited technical courses in one of the nation’s largest industrial training programs. 

Online training. Your people don’t have to leave their desks to receive targeted training from our experienced engineers. On a year-round basis, Horizon offers quick 1-hour technical product updates in an online meeting format. These webinars are accessible via major Internet browsers. They’re also archived on our Web site for viewing anytime by Horizon customers.

Custom courses. For your most flexible training option, choose custom training at your own site. Developed by Horizon with our world-class supplier partners, these courses can be tailored to specifically focus on the area or product you most need to cover. Whatever the training need, Horizon can put together a class for you. From technical information to regulatory compliance, we are the source for all of your training requirements.
