On-site Trainings

For the basic and advanced user trainings, Hamilton Storage can send instructors to train your employees on-site at your company. Your company takes care of providing the necessary infrastructure and instruments to ensure that the course runs smoothly and efficiently. Your company must pay for travel and accommodation as well as meals for the instructor and the trainees. Hamilton will provide qualified training instructors and technical know-how. Class size will remain at a maximum of three students.

Hamilton Facility

If on-site training is not desirable, courses can be taken at the Hamilton Storage facilities in Franklin, Massachusetts and Domat/Ems, Switzerland. Please see course descriptions for the locations of specific courses.
