The three courses that provide the learning foundation for TapRooT® are the:

  • 2-Day TapRooT® Incident Investigation and Root Cause Analysis Course
  • 3-Day TapRooT®/Equifactor® Equipment Troubleshooting and Root Cause Analysis Course
  • 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader Training

The 2-Day Course teaches the essential TapRooT® Techniques in the least amount of time. This is the TapRooT® Course for people who occasionally perform incident investigations or who participate on investigation teams. Or it can be the introductory course for those who don’t have time right now to attend the 5-Day Training.

The 3-Day Course is for people who need to find the causes of equipment failures. This can be as part of maintenance or equipment reliability improvement efforts or as part of safety or quality investigations that have equipment issues as part of the cause. The course is designed to benefit both people with an extensive equipment background and people who normally don’t deal with equipment reliability issues (safety managers or quality professionals).

The 5-Day Training is for those who want to get the most out of TapRooT®. People who:

  • Lead difficult investigations.
  • Are responsible for their company’s incident investigation, quality improvement, lean/six sigma, sentinel event investigation, process safety management, or operational excellence programs.
  • Want to understand the causes of human error.
  • Want to learn the optional TapRooT® Techniques to find and fix the root causes of human performance and equipment problems.
  • Want to learn the TapRooT® Software by using it in the class.
  • Want to get more from incident interviews by learning advanced interviewing techniques.

For more details about the right course for you, see the course descriptions and Getting Started.

TapRooT® Training also includes advanced special topic courses. See the information about those courses on the Course Page.
