On Jan 10, 2002, Tetra Tech’s first IMDS training took place, with the first registrant being Mr. Randy Van Duinen of American Metal and Plastics, Inc. Since that time, we have trained an additional 7,895 individuals in our 8 hour classroom trainings. That is 63,168 hours of IMDS classroom training; or 7 years, 2 months and 2 weeks of learning. No wonder our trainers seem to know all the answers!
Our projection is that in the late summer or early fall of 2018, we will welcome our 8,000-th trainee in the door. We are planning a special recognition for that person upon their arrival at the training. And a prize! Hint: it will have something to do with the number 8,000!
This commemoration, however, is meant to recognize all of our trainees and express our appreciation for your loyalty through the years. We especially appreciate those of you who valued your experience enough to return for refresher courses (yes we counted you twice – people change – you are not the same person you were in the past!)
A big thank you goes out to all of you!
