Instead of building a costly training center, the USTTI offers its tuition-free training in corporate and federal training facilities, laboratories, television stations and studios that are volunteered for USTTI training across the United States. Within these training facilities, USTTI participants receive first-hand exposure to the latest technologies. The photos below, were taken during a variety of hands-on USTTI training sessions and demonstrate the opportunity that USTTI participants have to interact with cutting-edge technologies and with their colleagues from around the world.
