Training & Education

Professional Growth

Learning matters!

Time and time again, our investment into training employees pays for itself. It enhances performance, boosts productivity and improves our culture.

Not all of our training comes with fancy names, hotel stays or company sponsorships. Hands-on training is happening everyday and our most motivated employees dig for opportunities to know more.

If you want it…we support you!

The program offers an extensive video library with on demand training on leadership, teams, and dealing with change, to topics such as marriage, parenting, finances, and even recovery.

Superior provides RightNow Media @ Work at no cost to support and enhance every employee’s personal, professional, and spiritual well-being and development.

Weld training Center

In 2007, we opened our own weld training center. The on campus facility is equipped with weld booths, grind booths and a classroom for instructing new and veteran welders alike.

Professor Dybdal and his team certify welders on a dozen or so methods of welding, offering training that takes weeks instead of months.

The program offers Superior’s employees a unique opportunity to raise skill and compensation levels. There is no cost to the employee, and participation is voluntary.
