When Patrick is not assisting the instructors with lesson plans you can find him sitting at the front desk of our training facility where he manages all of our day to day operations such as running our LTR Supply Center, filling customer orders, helping create new lesson plans, issuing certifications to our students and building the course calendar for future classes. He is our product expert and has taken the time to learn about everything that we sell. As the GM, he does not take the sales role as just another avenue to make money. He interacts with each and every customer and helps them make the best decision when it comes to what they need to stay safe on the job.
