Dustin Frea, Vice President of A-1 Body & Frame was eager to grow and develop his team.

When he found out about a 4-day, Welding Efficiency Bootcamp at Matrix Trade Institute, he was excited for his shop to have the opportunity for live hands-on training.

“In just four days I feel like I’ve gotten a month’s worth of practice, because of having that much floor time on the shop”, Frea said after attending MTI’s Welding Efficiency Bootcamp.

Upskill Efficiency Training

By providing a simulated shop environment where mistakes are expected and lead to a better understanding of processes and procedures required to efficiently diagnose and repair vehicles, Matrix is leading the way with a modern approach to help businesses retain and recruit technicians.

“It’s nice actually being able to take what you’ve learned in the classroom and putting it on to actual metal and seeing how things react,” Tyler Mackin, A-1 Body and Frame Technician said after completing MTI’s Welding Efficiency Bootcamp.
