Training At Park Industries®
Before your new stone countertop CNC machine arrives, you will attend training at our state-of-the-art training facility at our corporate headquarters in St. Cloud, MN.
Park-certified trainers provide hands-on experience tailored to address your needs and questions. You’ll leave training with the skills and knowledge to efficiently run your new machine from day one. Class sizes are kept small to give you more hands-on and face-to-face instructor time.
The hands-on philosophy of “learn by doing” is the most effective training available. Fabricators will learn CAD software, CNC programming, machine operations and preventive maintenance to properly maintain the equipment for increased longevity and optimal uptime.
