In his new capacity, he has already completed the required “Train the Trainer Program” for all our major manufacturers to include Canon, Hewlett Packard, and Xerox.

Mike’s high-level of training allows Usherwood to develop employees to the highest levels, considered by many to be well beyond those offered by direct manufacturers. In addition, he is responsible for teaching imaging theory, MFP equipment operations, product specifications, product capabilities, and advanced software. Usherwood’s professional development also consists and teaches technicians hardware procedures, assembly, disassembly, and reassembly processes, IT troubleshooting techniques, and professional decorum.

In addition, students will be certified for the manufacturers' products and have the ability to escalate to the highest levels of manufacturer support.
