The Hobbs Engineering team holds on-site and regional seminars, and presents at industry shows worldwide. Regional seminars are periodically conducted across the globe, usually in conjunction with partner labs, distributors or representatives. They can do In-House seminars in order to meet a companies specific needs.They are typically one or two days in length and provide an excellent opportunity to obtain first-hand information about HALT, HASS, and AccESS practices. Manufacturers can learn how to radically shorten new product development cycles and release a much more reliable product to market.

Web-based Education (WBE)

Our Web-based Education is a popular option for customers whose systems are geographically disbursed or who need to bring new hires up to speed fast. These self-paced online courses meet the same standards for content excellence and expert instruction offered by our Solutions Group. Free previews are available prior to commitment.
