Patton Partner Training

On 28 June 2002, six Patton Partners completed their training at Patton's Gaithersburg facility. Partner Training equips VARs, distributors, and other partners for peak performance in their markets. Partners came from Germany, Algeria, South Africa and Florida to sharpen their tools, returning to their home markets with broader and more in-depth knowledge of Patton's products and processes.

Patton Partner Training Participants - June 2002

"The schedule is intense," said Glen Flowers, Patton's Product Marketing Manager, functioning as 'master of ceremonies' for the event. "We pack five full days with presentations delivered by Patton's product managers, hands-on labs and demos led by our Tech Services team, and a full tour of our test and manufacturing facilities. Now these folks have some real power tools.

Several members of Patton's regional sales teams also participated alongside their partners, ensuring everyone reaped maximum benefits from the experience. Patton offers Partner Training once per quarter according to the schedule below.
