Certification Maintenance & Pre-Summit Courses

To maintain your certification you must attend a pre-Summit Course and the TapRoot® Summit at least every two years. Of course, we think it is a better idea to attend the Summit every year and a course every other year. What courses do you have to choose from?

To pick a course, first, consider which one might help you be a better instructor or help you improve your performance improvement knowledge the most.

The 2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Training is a good course to refresh your knowledge and see the latest teaching techniques.

The Stopping Human Error Training is a brand new course and will give you new ideas to help improve your company’s efforts to improve human performance.

If you want to add equipment troubleshooting and root cause analysis to the things you teach, expand your license to include the Equifactor® Troubleshooting and TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Course (completely revised for 2020) to get ready to co-teach that course at your facility.

To get really knowledgable about the TapRoot® VI Software, attend the TapRooT® Software Implementation and Application Training.

To add evidence collection and interviewing techniques to your TapRoot® License, get started by attending the TapRooT® Evidence Collection and Interviewing Techniques to Sharpen Investigation Skills Training. Barb Carr has made major improvements to this course this year.

Another skill that you may be interested in is Mistake Proofing (Poka Yoke). Learn it from an expert – Kevin Mcmanus – in the Best Practices in Mistake Proofing & Effective Corrective Action Training.

Are you interested in Hazard Assessment? Consider attending Joel Solomon’s course, Using “What If” and TapRooT® for Hazard Assessment.

Want to learn the latest best practices in Risk Management? Attend Jim Whiting’s course, Risk Management – Best Practices & ROBT (risk and Opportunity Based Thinking).

If your company is interested in safety culture and safety culture change, attend the TapRooT® Analyzing and Fixing Safety Culture Issues, taught by Brian Tink.

Finally, if you teach TapRooT® at medical facilities, choose the new course, TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis for Patient Safety Improvement.

That’s a great selection of courses to choose from.

Where and When is the TapRooT® Summit?

The Summit is being held at the Horseshoe Bay Resort near Austin, Texas, on March 9-13.
