Professional Training at Significant Savings:
The ESA E-Learning Program, Your Competitive Advantage!


ESA Members may now provide high-quality technical skills training programs for their shop employees, through the ESA E-Learning Program. This program provides access to high-quality virtual training resources that cover a wide range of technical areas, at significant cost savings. With better-trained, more capable, competent and confident technicians, a competitive advantage is created for the ESA Member.

Whether your mechanics and technicians are working toward IFPS Certification, or you are seeking to upgrade and refresh the safety and skill level of your shop team, turn to the ESA  E-Learning Program, a training platform that provides a cost-effective option for ESA Members.

ESA has partnered with CFC Industrial Training, and Bob Sheaf’s team of experts to offer a new training resource. CFC Industrial Training’s E-Learning web-based training is now available to all ESA Member companies at a significant 40% discount off CFC’s regular pricing! For example, a basic hydraulic skills training program that can be viewed online typically costs $300, but for ESA Members, the cost will be $180! Because of the online format, such training can be provided to multiple employees at the same time at one low cost. If you are aggressive with your training, you could also opt for a six-month, flat fee license that provides access to ALL courses. For up to 10 employees, the cost is only $800 for the six-month license. Imagine being able to train 10 people for only $80 each!

With a wide variety of professionally-produced programs providing training in less than an hour on specific topics, consider setting up a lunch-and-learn session for your employees in your break room, where they can improve skills at a very low cost with high impact!  Or, assign training at your employees’ convenience, where they can use their home computer to complete refresher courses and learn new skills and techniques.
