If you’ve never seen the Rocky Mountains in September or experienced the beauty of Denver, now is your chance! TapRooT® is offering a 2-Day Public Course that is filling up quickly. You will have the opportunity to not only learn the valuable TapRooT® root cause techniques, but also visit the one and only “Mile-High City”. The majestic mountains and national parks aren’t the only things worthy of a visit to Denver, though. Check out our entertainment and food suggestions below to begin planning your trip today!

Food:

Snooze: Whether you’re a breakfast person or not, everyone can enjoy Snooze. It’s not just typical breakfast items, you can find gourmet sandwiches, sweet breakfast treats and fresh vegetable and fruit plates.

Denver Biscuit Company: Famous for their “Mile-High” biscuits, they make biscuits of all flavors with a plethora of toppings to create something original and delicious.

Fruition Restaurant: Looking for a more gourmet, fine-dining experience? Look no further. Fruition is the number one restaurant in Denver for presentation, flavor and perfection. You can’t get better than that

Attractions: 

Denver Botanic Gardens: Find your inner-adventurer and take a stroll through these breathtaking gardens. The locals describe them as “serene and beautiful”, that’s my kind of adventure!

Denver Museum for Nature and Science: If the weather isn’t cooperating for an adventurous outing, Denver has you covered. Get all the nature indoors at this huge and highly-reviewed museum.

Denver Zoo: Not all zoos are the same; some have more animals, different species, larger exhibits, etc. But Denver’s zoo has it all. If you’re bringing the whole family on this trip to Denver, the zoo is one of the best spots!

Find and Fix the Root Causes of Equipment Related Failures

August 19th, 2015 by

Don’t end up “fixing” the same equipment problems over and over again. Don’t let equipment issues cause quality, operations, and safety issues. Find the real root causes of your equipment reliability issues and develop effective fixes that will keep them from happening again by using this systematic process.

Did you know that we have 3-day and 1-day courses? What’s the difference? 3-Day Courses include the 1-Day Equifactor® Course along with the 2-Day Incident Investigation and Root Cause Analysis Course so you have it all in one. The 1-Day courses are just the separate Equifactor® course that requires a previously taken 2-Day course along with it, not necessarily all in one trip.

Why take an Equifactor® course? You will not only receive invaluable knowledge for your business, but also a Free single-user copy of TapRooT® Software. (A $2890 Value!) You can’t get a better deal than that.

Still deciding? Watch the video below to hear our Equifactor® instructor, Ken Reed, talk about why this course is right for you.

 

Steps to register for the course and Free Software.

1) CLICK HERE

2) Select a 1-Day Equifactor® Course of your choice (Having already taken a 2-Day course or accompanying it with a 2-Day course)

3) Register for the course and add it to your cart

4) Done!
