Recorded May 4, 2021
As technology and technological acceptance have increased over time, online training has grown workplaces across the world. The COVID-19 pandemic only accelerated that trend, and even when COVID's finally behind us, online training tools will be increasingly important. As this is true at nearly all workplace, field, and industry, it's certainly true for maintenance workers, and in fact there are some aspects of online training (and performance support) that are especially relevant to training maintenance workforces.
In this webinar, we'll introduce you to some primary tech, terms, techniques, and jargon of the online training world.
PLEASE NOTE: This webinar is put on by a company that creates many online training solutions for specific maintenance training needs (as well as training needs for general manufacturing; architecture, engineering, and construction, and more). This includes libraries on electrical maintenance, mechanical maintenance, facilities maintenance, reliability and maintainability, lean, quality, continuous improvement, total productive maintenance, and more. However, this particular webinar will focus on technologies related to online training and will be facilitated by a learning and development professional, not a maintenance professional. So the technology and tips will be the primary focus of this webinar, although we will point out some specific uses of online training for maintenance workforces along the way. Additionally, we'll refer you to two previous (and now recorded) webinars that go into much more detail about maintenance (a case study of working with a client to create a maintenance tech "certification" program and a discussion with the University of Tennessee's Reliability & Maintainability Center about their Maintenance & Reliability Competitive Excellence Model).
During this webinar, we’ll discuss:
- An overview of workplace performance improvement
- Impactful training "moments of need"
- Common online training tools & tech
- Selection criteria (LMS, courses, and providers)
- Tips for the COVID era
