Plan your Training Journey… Where are you, and where will you need to be? Do you know where you’re starting from? What is the training culture within your organization? Evaluate current skill-sets and attributes in your work teams. Why are you training? Status quo? Succession planning? Future growth? Regulatory Changes? ??? Finding the common denominator amongst trainees is critical in making future plans a success! “I do it the way Susie told me to”
Plan your Training Journey… Where are you, and where will you need to be? Know your road blocks! Advancement for the program and for trainees requires a clear path both holistically and per session. Starting simple evens the playing field, and makes future goals attainable! Identify even the simple pieces. Who, What, When, Where, Why? Oh…and don’t forget to ask “How Much?”
Plan your Training Journey… Where are you, and where will you need to be? What’s around the next corner? What will your staff need to be ready for? Does your strategic plan call for major changes?

What is the industry doing that impacts your team knowledge? What is your team sustainability? How many will retire next year? In 2 years? In 5 years? What regulatory changes and requirements exist?

Don’t let the momentum die. From training to implementation, how will you avoid brain drain?

Be prepared for the answers… Continual strategic planning and maintenance is critical to your momentum! In the answers, find your future! Ready, Set, GO! Development, Deployment and Impact…
Every Race has Fans! Do you know who’s watching? Many accrediting bodies maintain competency requirements Assessment guidelines, timeliness and methodology must be maintained. TJC accepts demonstration based methods as well as scored testing Testing must be scored by “qualified” individuals Testing answers must be reviewed by user and trainer Maintain competency per session and per role Annualized competency assessment Session conclusion assessments There is no Principal’s office here..
