703Custom Asbestos Training Opportunities

We provide custom classes for our clients to be held at their facilities. R.H. Welch, Inc. has recently brought on an additional instructor to better accommodate the training needs of our clients. With this additional instructor, we now have the ability to offer our services to a larger clientele group.

The major complaint I’ve received concerning the training world is the need for companies to send their employees to a training provider’s office for the training, this could be a burden for those who do not live close to a training provider and for many companies this requires travel time, hotel costs and time away from family. I would like to provide a service to our clients that takes away that burden, we would like to offer the opportunity to have R.H. Welch, Inc. deliver your training at your facility.
