Convergence Training is creating a series of ready-made, off-the-shelf training materials for the pulp, paper, tissue, and corrugated board industries.
When complete, the series will include 180 titles specifically focused on pulp, paper, tissue, and/or corrugated board production. In addition, another 30 courses will address related cultural issues (such as 5S Methodology), general skills (such as Process and Instrumentation Diagrams), hazardous materials (such as Hydrogen Sulfide Awareness), environmental issues (such as Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures), and workforce training and mentoring (such as Adult Learning).
All courses include audio narration synced with animated visuals, practice questions, and tests to ensure comprehension. The visuals incorporate still graphics; onscreen texts; labels and pointers; highlights; and the 3D animation style that is Convergence’s hallmark and that has already been put to great use in many workplaces throughout the industry.
The courses are the result of Convergence’s 15 years of experience creating highly effective training materials for leaders in the pulp, paper, tissue, and box industries. They were constructed with input from industry leaders and industry organizations, and were built by Convergence’s staff of paper engineering subject matter experts, instructional designers, graphic designers, writers, and editors.
Even better, the courses can be paired with one of Convergence Training’s powerful and flexible learning management systems (LMS) that are specially designed for, and include tools that are helpful in, training industrial and manufacturing work forces. You can use a Convergence LMS to assign these courses (and other materials) to your workers, to ensure and keep record of their completion, to create training materials of your own, to manage instructor-led training, and to incorporate task-based training or performance evaluation in which a worker is required to demonstrate his or her job-related skills to a supervisor. There’s even a mobile device that lets you take the powers of the LMS—and the training—into the field (yes, even if there’s no wireless!).
