Today marks the end of yet another successful TapRooT® course in the Middle East.  All TapRooT® courses end with an exercise where students get to use what they learned on an investigation from their company, followed by management presentations.  I must say the presentations today were some of the best I have seen!  Here are some pictures of the final presentations and the class picture:

Pictures from Public 5 Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader Training course in Dubai

Posted: February 24th, 2013 in Courses

I just finished day 1 of our public course here in Dubai.  I have a great group this week!  Here are some pictures of the students working on their SnapCharT® exercise, determining what happened in an investigation of a hazardous waste fire:

IMG_0274 IMG_0275 IMG_0276 IMG_0277

I admit these are not the best pictures, but I was taking them facing the outside windows and the sun is very bright.  But when the view outside of your classroom is a perfect golf course and palms trees I guess you can’t complain too much!

This class filled, so if you wanted to attend and we could not accommodate you, I do apologize.  However,  we do have two more courses in the Middle East in April:

5 Day – Doha, April 21-25

2 Day – Dubai, April 28-29

Both classes are half full already, so if you want to attend, you should register as soon as possible.  To register, click HERE
