More groov EPIC graduates for the class of 2024

Posted by Janice Colmer on Mar 12, 2024 1:36:09 PM

Read feedback from students in the March 2024 groov EPIC Premium Factory Training class.

It was another full class of eager-to-learn groov EPIC students who made the trip to Opto 22 headquarters in Temecula, California this month. The value of in-person, instructor-led training is once again clear after another successful week: the course benefits engineers at all levels of experience with all types of applications. And that’s thanks to the team of Opto trainers who devote their time to developing a comprehensive, integrated class curriculum.

Hear what this month's students had to say about their groov EPIC training experience. Then register to join us for the next class!



This month, students made the trip to California from Texas, New Mexico, Florida, Colorado, Idaho and even Canada to attend and spend 4 days immersed in the groov EPIC system—learning all its features, capabilities, and programming options.  And it's always fun to take the class on a tour of the manufacturing plant, so they can see first-hand how these EPIC products are made.

If you haven't attended training yet, we hope you can join us at one of our upcoming classes.

And there's also plenty to do and see in Temecula, CA while you're not in class. Make the most of your visit!
