At Park Industries®

Prior to your new CNC machine arriving, you will attend training at our state-of-the-art training facility, at our corporate headquarters in St. Cloud, MN.

Park certified trainers will give you hands-on experience and tailored training to ensure that you gain the skills and knowledge to efficiently run your new machine. 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.

The Park Trainer I had is one of the finest individuals I have ever met in this business, and I have been doing this for over 17 years now. He took great care in training us and truly cares about his profession and our success as a customer. He made sure we were prepared by the end of the class.

Evolution Design

The training session Park provided was very helpful. Their tech was patient and thorough in all his training. One of our new programmers is now up to speed on the process for the Titan programming and one of our seasoned vets said, even he gained additional knowledge. It was very resourceful and we appreciate the partnership with them.

Park’s trainers and their process is about as good as it gets. They are clear, make sense, and understand our needs as fabricators. After one week of training at their facility and one week of training at ours, I felt fully trained on our new TITAN even with no prior CAD experience. When we bought a CNC saw from a different company, we felt like we were left on our own to figure it out – they only cared about the sale. It took us 7 months before I felt fully trained and proficient on that machine. You are looking at 2 weeks versus 7 months. Park’s training is just another way they provided us Peace of Mind!
