  • Coaching for Packers Instructors: LACMA's Coaching for Packers Instructors goes much further than the regular "in-house" training. The goal is to generate, for the first time in the industry, a trainer's chain that takes the knowledge back to their businesses and turns them into "in house" trainers for packers. This, not only is cost effective for the participating company, but also guarantees a standardized way of working within the organization. This program culminates with the certification: LACMA Certified Packers.
