Our Philosophy of Training

In producing our courses, we have several goals in mind that shape the product into its final form.

  • To make the course simple enough for a new employee and yet complete enough that even seasoned employees would like the course and learn from it.
  • To provide a curriculum that would standardize training, so all employees would be trained from the same material.
  • To break the cycle of having "the best operator" train a new employee having no curriculum or road map for training.
  • To provide a flexible means of training that would not require an in-plant trainer or someone to develop curriculum, since not all plants have such a person or can afford one.
  • To make the training very affordable by selling it on a per-person basis rather that charging a large amount to sell a DVD.  This way you only pay for training when you need it rather than having a costly DVD lying on a shelf.
  • To provide video, slides, drawings, and links so the student is engaged.
  • To deliver training over the Internet so it can be watched anywhere by this Internet-savvy generation.
  • To make it upgradable.  Since the program is hosted on the Internet, changes and improvements can be made at any time.  Our desire is that our courses get better as you supply comments and criticisms.

Online training is a valuable and cost-effective method for continuous education and overall productivity enhancement.
