Virtual or In-Person TapRooT® RCA Training?

Sanjay

Which Training Mode Should You Choose?

Back in the days of the dreaded COVID shutdowns, it was easy to choose between virtual or in-person TapRooT® Training. You almost had no choice. You couldn’t put people together in a room, therefore you chose virtual training.

We didn’t just provide the same 2-Day Course virtually. We went into great detail to make sure that virtual training was effective. This included prototype course testing, student evaluation feedback, post-course testing, and investigation grading/review follow-up.

The normal 2-Day (8 hours per day) TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Course was converted into a 3-Day (6 hours per day) Virtual TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Course.

Even after careful development and testing, each course has certain advantages. So, I thought I’d explain the advantages so that you could choose the best type of training for your employees.

Advantages of the 3-Day Virtual TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Training

What are the advantages of the 3-Day Virtual TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Course? Consider these advantages:

  • If your employees are scattered out over a region and can’t get to one location for training, this course is an obvious choice.
  • This training is available in public courses held in time zones all over the world, so if you only have a few people to train worldwide, this can be your best option.
  • No travel is required for the students or the instructor. This can reduce overall costs by reducing travel expenses.

Advantages of the in-person 2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Training

What are the advantages of the in-person 2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Course? Consider these advantages:

  • Quite simply, even though the virtual courses are interactive and effective, you just can’t beat an in-person course for the training experience.
  • The 2-Day TapRooT® Course is available in public courses held all over the world, so if you can’t get all your people into a single course, you can send some folks to in-person public courses.
  • Our public courses may be nearby and thus require no travel costs.
  • Some of our public courses are in “vacation” type destinations and may be considered a reward for employees who attend.

Advantages of the In-Person 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader Course

First, the 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader Course is only given in person. It is taught both in on-site courses and public courses held around the world.

The main advantage of the 5-Day TapRooT® Course is that you learn both the essential TapRooT® Techniques taught in the 2-Day/3-Day Training plus the advanced techniques (CHAP, Change Analysis, and Equifactor® Troubleshooting), interviewing techniques, human factors information, and proactive improvement techniques. You will also get additional practice applying the TapRoot® Software in the course exercises.
