CalTraining, Inc.

operates as a merger of two companies:


Expert Resource & California Training Coalition

Expert Resource

Expert Resource (ER) is a diverse consulting and training provider of performance management initiatives with over 250 client companies of all sizes and industries. Headquartered in Upland, California (USA), the company offers 100+ consultants spread throughout the United States with additional locations in Japan, China, Singapore, and Canada. We have also assisted clients in dozens of countries.

Most of our clients seek certifications to quality, environmental, laboratory, product, industry-specific, and manufacturing specifications. 100% of our clients (hundreds) pass their first attempt at certification.

Nadcap Aerospace Specifications

Expert Resource is the largest provider of Nadcap aerospace industry manufacturing specifications consulting in the world. ER provides highly experienced consultants in every area of Nadcap. Our clients range from large prime aerospace contractors to small job shops. Our consultants are trusted experts with decades of aerospace manufacturing knowledge and specifications consulting. We can cover all of your Nadcap needs, from Gap Assessments to comprehensive training, document development, and conformance implementation. We provide fixed costs based on tangible deliverables and ensure rapid implementation with guaranteed conformance. Don’t just assume that a quality consultant with some aerospace experience is a good Nadcap consultant. Be sure that your consultants are highly experienced in Nadcap-specific specifications in Chemical Processing, Coatings, Composites, Electronics, Fluid Distribution Components, NDT, Materials Testing, Fasteners, Seals, Sealants, Conventional Machining, Nonconventional Machining, Heat Treating, Welding, and Surface Enhancement.

ISO Management Systems

Our ISO Management Systems consulting is very diverse covering the majority of management system standards for various industries such as ISO 9000, AS9100, AS9110, AS9120, ISO/TS 16949, ISO 14000, TL9000, ISO 15189, ISO 13485, ISO 17025, etc. 100% of our clients pass their first attempt at certification, but what makes us unique is that we provide systems that truly reflect the way you do business. We do not force templates on you; rather we start with your company’s existing operations and build in conformance. Your process owners will become co-authors and take ownership, while we will take the burden of developing their content into procedures. Our Internal Auditor Training is world-class and ER is recommended by leading registrars (the auditing authorities). Our pricing is very competitive and we ensure total customer satisfaction.

Medical Device Industry

Medical Device product certifications are a primary business for ER, including European CE Mark Technical Files, USA FDA 510(k) Product Submissions, and quality management system certifications USA GMP, European ISO 13485, Canadian CMDR and CMDCAS, and Japan’s PAL.

Process Performance and Specifications

ER is also a leader in many other performance management initiatives such as Lean Manufacturing, Six Sigma, Electro-Static Discharge (ESD S20.20), Statistical Process Control (SPC), Process Mapping, Geometric Dimension and Tolerance (GDT), etc.

Federal Funding for Consulting

In many cases, ER helps to secure USA Federal Funding for manufacturing companies based in the USA when adversely affected by imports. This funding will off-set 50% - 75% of the consulting costs associated with ER.


California Training Coalition

California Training Coalition (CalTraining, Inc.) provides development and administration of California State performance-based contracts, which reimburse California companies for training employees utilizing the Employment Training Panel (ETP) program. Our clients’ contracts have ranged from awards of $20,000 to $13,000,000 and have averaged nearly $1,000 per employee. We also provide a wide range of world-class trainers and corporate training courses.


The California Training Coalition Advantage:

    • Since 1986, 100% of our clients have their applications approved utilizing our success guarantee.
    • We greatly reduce your burden by administrating the ETP program and work with your staff to ensure a smooth program rollout.
    • We maximize your funding and identify ways to keep the money on your bottom line.
    • We have “rescued” multiple companies. All too often some competitors “fund and run” or poorly administrate the program once training starts. We have brought life back to existing programs and maximized funding that would otherwise have been lost.
