Topomaster offers several products and services to help with training. Topomaster can help a company determine if there are gaps for identified roles and if this is effecting the overall success of the maintenance organization. A few key areas are as follows:
Training and Qualification Needs Analysis
In this step, the information from the roles and responsibilities are combined with the data from the CMMS/ EAM system to develop a Duty-Task Needs analysis. This step will insure the data is available to develop the correct training for each of the job roles that were previously identified. This eliminates developing redundant or superfluous training materials, which is a waste of training, maintenance and operational resources.
Job Assignment Standardization
This step insures that the roles and responsibilities that were developed are standardized across the entire organization. This insures the organizational stability to develop the training program across the maintenance and operations organizations. This standardization will prevent the need for “custom training” based on each departments perceived needs. This will eliminate any waste in training program development. Topomaster also offers a number of training classes and workshops. We are always adding to the list. Many of these are taught as public workshops but others are taught specifically for customers at their sites. Some of the more popular training classes and workshops are:
