The Academy of Business Training is the leading U. S. provider of short term (1 – 5 days) college level manufacturing courses. We use the same textbooks, by well-known publishers like Cengage Learning and Pearson, as major colleges and universities. The most important difference between us and a college or university is ABT instructors have a minimum of 30 years business experience and have held a senior management position for at least 5 years in the course they are teaching. Most business school instructors come from an educational background and have very little on the job experience. When you take an ABT business training class you are learning from a business professional trained in facilitative learning....not educators with no experience. Just like you...they started on the line and worked their way up...so they speak your language and understand what you need to learn.
We are proud to have earned the coveted rating of A+ with the Better Business Bureau.

We believe the vast majority of employees want to do a good job and when they don’t, it’s not because they don’t care…it’s because they just don’t know any better. Many companies make the mistake of assuming new employees know what to do. The way things usually play out is the employee is hired and provided little or no training. They learn what to do by watching other employees. If the employees they are watching have not been trained properly the problem compounds itself. When the employee does something wrong they are scolded or reprimanded. The employee becomes resentful and develops an attitude; which, if not dealt with, can spread like a cancer through your company.
We operate on the premise, the only people qualified to teach business classes are individuals who have successfully performed the skill over a period of years and have gone on to become managers of others skilled in the subject. Only then can the instructor pass on skills worthy of your employees’ time and your money.
We seek out experienced business professionals and then teach them to train what they know best using our rigorous training curriculum and the latest facilitative learning techniques.
No motivational speakers here, only instructors who will inspire your employees to do the best job they have been taught to do. We stick to teaching proven business practices and procedures and leave the motivational high jinx to the other guys. If you read the advice given by any seasoned motivational speaker, the thing they all stress is they are performers. Do you want to entertain your employees? Doubtful! You will not find our instructors dancing around, having your employees chant, or beating drums. The result of such a class is to get your employees all fired up for a few days. After that, it then leaves everyone scratching their heads wondering how the class they just took will actually help them.
In the vast majority of cases, motivational classes are just thinly masked sales pitches for pricey tapes or books and/or consulting services. We do not participant in this form of up-selling. If you have ever hired a motivational speaker, you know what we are talking about.
