Our instructors are industry experts focused on excellence
Becht Engineering employs several hundred senior specialists, serving the process and energy industries. Many of Becht’s specialists are also experienced instructors, with countless years of experience in mentoring and teaching other professionals. Becht’s specialists teach a variety of technical courses around the world and are industry experts, who have spent their careers in pace setting owner-operator organizations. Arrangements can be made for any of the courses listed in the current training brochure to be taught at or near your site and most courses can be modified to custom suit your training needs.
Becht Performance Group’s workshop and scenario-based exercises encourage trainees to synthesize new information and best practices into their daily tasks, bridging the gap between learning and practice. As compared with typical PowerPoint-focused lectures during which trainees are rarely engaged and frequently lose information before they even leave the classroom, this methodology has been proven to maximize retention and synthesis of information by incorporating multimodal learning techniques and engaging trainees. As German psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus stated in “The Forgetting Curve”, if new information is not applied, 75% of the information will be forgotten within six days.
Our trainings ensure your team’s skills and knowledge stay sharp
