Performance Associates International (PAI) is the worldwide leader in mine and plant industrial training. Our interactive web-based training and experienced instructors will improve your operation’s performance.

We pioneered developing and delivering first-class computer-based mine and plant industrial training (CBT) programs. Performance Associates’ programs are designed for mines and plants currently in operation where performance improvements are required and also for new mines and plants preparing for start-up to ensure employees are prepared to successfully start up and optimize the operation. For over 30 years, our start-up training programs have been instrumental to companies around the world in starting up new operations safely and ramping up to full production in record time. We train mine and plant operators, maintenance personnel, and supervisors in the specific skills necessary to effectively operate, maintain, and start up mines and plants. Our worldwide multicultural experience not only allows us to be effective in modern industrial countries but also as in the developing countries of Africa, Asia, and South America.

For process plant operator industrial training, we focus on the three tiers of effective training: introductory courses on the fundamentals of unit operations, plant-specific safety procedures, process descriptions and control, interlocks, alarms, and operating procedures, and finally on high-end animations and simulations. For plant maintenance, we focus on safety, equipment and component descriptions, troubleshooting, and preventive maintenance (PM). For mines, we focus on the fundamentals of mobile equipment, mobile equipment PM, and the specific mine mobile equipment models at the client location, including safety, controls and indicators, operating and emergency procedures, and performance optimization.

Since 1983, our mine and plant industrial training programs have consistently produced outstanding results for hundreds of clients on nearly every continent of the world, in both English and in local languages. If your operations involve heavy industrial process circuits and equipment, Performance Associates is the right company to provide the training program. Let us help evaluate your needs and suggest a training program specifically tailored to the results you need; after all, it is what we do. Training makes a difference—you know it, and we know it.
