Gap Training Solutions is a boutique training and coaching company. It allows us to follow our passions and help select organizations and businesses achieve their full potential by resolving workforce skill gaps through unique approaches and customized training. We have trained, coached, and mentored at federal and state levels, at university and technical college levels, and at corporate and small business levels. We have facilitated workshops, off-sites, and strategic planning sessions; conducted experiential and team building sessions; and taught an extensive portfolio of courses including operations management, critical thinking, creative problem solving, effective communication, professional etiquette, project management boot camps, business ethics, diversity, industrial production, and general business and management courses.

One of our most significant deliverables to date is the design and development of a 40-hour course being used by Georgia’s largest industrial complex and one of the state’s largest employers to teach supervisors and managers how to be effective leaders and guide a broad, diverse workforce in the principles of operations and production in an Air Force depot setting.

Your organization and circumstances are unique; why settle for generic training? We specialize in listening, hearing and understanding your issues, and crafting custom solutions just for you.
