Apartment Maintenance Education – Fun, Effective, and Retainable

Some questions we discussed:

  • You have an extensive background in teaching maintenance classes. How would you say your teaching style has changed over the years? Anything you did, in particular, to help improve your teaching skillset?
  • You recently had a career change from the management side to the industry partner side. What was the learning curve like for you as an educator?
  • Maintenance training is not really one of those subjects that most would say is “fun” but more rudimentary. What have you done as a trainer to make your classes “fun”, impactful, and even more important – retention driven?

What one actionable tip could you share that has served you well as an educator?

Continue your education by surrounding yourself with people with like passions.
