Congratulations ACRP Member Matt Schmitt

2016 Top Trainer Professional Category.

Matt Schmitt, Instructor – Overton Safety Training Inc., Aloha, Ore., was recognized as the 2016 Professional Top Trainer. Schmitt represents Professional Trainers working for companies that are primarily engaged in training activities.
Communicating a complex technical subject in a simplified manner has gotten Matt Schmitt far in his training career. His knowledge of technical lifting combined with his unique style of teaching has enabled him to bring clarity to a group of students who may not have passed a difficult certification process without expert instruction. Matt was tasked with bringing up to speed crane operators who must comply with Chicago city rules and regulations. Many students have a primary language other than English, and their background is in material delivery with limited education on other types of equipment. Using some of Overton Safety Training’s base materials, Matt worked with the operators to develop a training program that improved their previous training and testing by more than 200%.
