Impact Training Corporation is a workforce development company based in Savannah, GA whose goal is to provide workers and trainees with knowledge, skills, and abilities that assist them in becoming high-performing, self-reliant individuals who are an asset to any organization.

Impact Training principals, Ruthann Walsh and Jorie Philippi, partnered in 1993 to found a corporation that develops customized  hiring systems, training programs, and training materials with a focus on entry-level workers. From our initial efforts in the Savannah, GA area we have grown to an organization serving clients across the United States, in Canada, and in Australia.

The primary aims of any training program are to develop long-term retention of what is taught, or "deep learning", and to enable transfer of what is learned in the classroom to the targeted  areas of implementation. To accomplish these goals, Impact Training focuses training objectives and custom-designed materials on an understanding of the critical thinking strategies used by competent workers during their performance of critical job tasks; Impact Training also incorporates into training the situations and materials typically used on the job in order to facilitate transfer of learning. Measurable improvements of both personal abilities and job performance are commonly the results of our training, training workbooks and materials.

We began our company in 1993 to provide opportunities for employees. We've achieved our goal and are now proudly serving many repeat clients. Our customers, new and old, look to us for great quality and incredible service. We try to deliver on these expectations every time.
