Workshops with John Klote


You do not need to hire an expensive expert to analyze and design your smoke control system. You can have a workshop held at your office to give your engineers the expertise to do the job in house. Workshops are usually one day sessions tailored to the specific needs of the client. The workshops are intended to enable the attendees to quickly gain expertise in a specific kind of smoke control system. The number of attendees usually ranges from 5 to 20.


Tutoring


Tutoring is a special service intended for design engineers, and tutoring consists of one on one instruction on topics of the client’s choice. Tutoring can be done in person, but it is often done by telephone and email.
