Skilled Operator Status

Training Sessions focus on theoretical as well as technical skills. Hot stamping and silkscreen printing processes, ergonomics, machine operations and best practices are covered.

Deming PDCA Cycle

Our training process is based on the Deming PDCA cycle.
1- Planning (“Plan”): together with the client, we carefully analyze needs and formalize specific training requirements, objectives and expectations for each session given specific customer needs.

2- Action  (“Do”): after defining a detailed program with the client, we carry out the training action in accordance with the expectations previously set with our client and each attendee.

3- Verification (“Check”): at the end of the training, each attendee completes a “hot” questionnaire with personal comments about the completed session.  This will be analyzed to allow us to continue to fine tune our training program to meet evolving needs.

4- Follow Up (“Act”): following client follow up conversations, we identify any additional steps that could support process improvements. Six months after the training is completed, a “cold” questionnaire is completed by participants indicating the level of success trainees have had implemented their new skills. Additional resources are provided if continued support is needed.
