Course Overview

Self-paced learning means you can learn in your own time and schedule. Course materials do not become available according to a schedule, but are completely available as soon as the course begins (purchased). Assignments and exams do not have start or due dates, this can be completed on your own time and space. The course shows indicators for graded assignments, but not due dates.

The main advantages of self-paced learning: Self-paced learning comes with several advantages that can enhance the performance of the employees. Here are some main benefits:

  • No pressure, more retention: Self-paced learning removes the time pressure that exists during live training. There’s no pressure to complete the assignments and learn at the same speed as others. No one needs to pretend that they understood something that they didn’t. Instead, they can review the material on their own. A study published in the Journal of Memory and Language indicated that self-paced learning might also increase retention.

  • Setting your own schedule: Self-paced learning enables employees to create their schedules. It is especially helpful for participants that have other tasks and can’t attend a live class or training. Even if there is a deadline to complete a course, for example, they can choose how and when they take it.

  • Possibly less distraction: When employees create their learning schedules, they can study when they can focus best. They can pick when they have fewer interruptions from colleagues or other tasks. Of course, it takes self-discipline to accomplish that. They will need to tune out distractions at home and ignore their phones.

  • Suitable for different learning styles: People have different learning styles. Some people learn fast, while others take their time. People who prefer to complete the material quickly should not have to wait for others. Self-paced learning makes it possible for your participants to adapt to their different learning styles.

  • On completion of the course: On completion of the course students will earn a professionals certificate as well as CPD Points from ECSA (2). PMI certificate holders can also claim 14 PMI PDU’s from this course.

Course Overview

Corporate responsibility has come a long way. Today this includes topics like integrity, safety, growth, caring and personal development on top of customer satisfaction and profits. None of these objectives can be achieved without a structured approach of planning, implementation and controls and staff need to be equipped for this task if they are to be successful or even held accountable.

The course is based in tried and tested methodologies of problem solving, much of which have been developed in the automotive industry and quality assurance fields. Delegates will walk away with a toolkit to equip them for problems ranging from industrial accidents, equipment failure, performance losses, dissatisfied customers, system failures and many more.

  • You will learn the basic process of Root Cause Analysis, which is a universally applicable skill and does not depend on your qualifications, discipline, industry or situation.
  • You will also learn a group of powerful tools which can be applied in almost any engineering problem situation and even in many non-engineering problems too.
  • We will discuss case studies to help you understand the application of the tools you learn.
  • You will get hands-on through a range of exercises aimed at teaching the skills and tools through simple case-studies and scenarios.
