Online Training For Shopfloor Personnel

The real problem is, most of us don’t have the experience, resources or acumen to effectively deliver and administrate an effective training program across an enterprise. Have you visited Tooling U lately (www.toolingu.com)? Tooling U (short for Tooling University) was founded a few short years ago and since that time has grown gradually, methodically and quite effectively into several disciplines and topics of training relevant in today’s manufacturing environment.

 

The challenges faced by manufacturers due to the lack of qualified, effective and improving machining personnel can affect all elements of your enterprise. Finding or nurturing talent, developing managers and active participants within the design and development of product, and growing your shop’s competence all directly impact how well you do in today’s hyper-competitive, service-rich manufacturing markets.

Chances are you don’t need someone else rubbing your face in it.

Have you visited Tooling U lately (www.toolingu.com)? Tooling U (short for Tooling University) was founded a few short years ago and since that time has grown gradually, methodically and quite effectively into several disciplines and topics of training relevant in today’s manufacturing environment.

There are currently 129 classes offered by Tooling U. They run the gamut of machining categories from workholding and metal cutting to inspection and CNC. They have recently mapped their courses to the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) standards. Tooling U also contains a substantial curriculum serving screw machining disciplines.

But what really distinguishes Tooling U is its commitment to convenience and agility. Tooling U courses can be taken and managed by an individual, or the curriculum can be accessed, delivered and administrated by a company. Corporations may institute a Tooling U program across the enterprise, for select personnel, or in blocks to be taken at the individual’s pace.

And here’s another benefit that you may want to know about: Tooling U has a relationship with PMPA that means PMPA members get a 10 percent discount on training programs when accessed through the PMPA Web site (www.toolingu.com/pmpa).

Training is a life-long process, and Tooling U hasn’t been standing still.
