NADCA’s Train the Trainer Seminar is Coming to Grand Rapids, MI

November 8, 2017 by NADCA in Industry News

NADCA’s Train the Trainer seminar is coming to Grand Rapids, MI. The NADCA Train-the-Trainer program is the first step in installing the NADCA In-House Basic Operator Training Program. This customized version of Train-the-Trainer is a cost effective method of providing the skills and knowledge needed on the shop floor because it provides die casting companies with their own in-house operator trainers. Companies cut down on costs when their own employees are trained as instructors, since they do not have to work with an outside consulting firm unfamiliar with the company's mission to establish a training program. Employees trained as instructors will have a more realistic idea of company goals, and may be received more favorably by employees over outside instructors.

Individuals who are interested in becoming NADCA Basic Operator Instructors at their respective companies must attend NADCA's Train-the-Trainer session. This is a two day program covering areas such as implementing the company's operator training program, training employees, teaching effectively and receiving positive feedback. Once a company implements the in-house program, operators who successfully complete this training and pass the final examination will receive Level I Certification, earning the title of Certified Die Casting Technician. The Operator Training Publications are also available to individuals whose companies may not have an In-House training program.

The program helps to achieve critical goals for the company: increased productivity, reduced scrap, and lower die costs. It also provides a way for employees to continue their growth and learning through their jobs. This ultimately leads to improved work performance, more operator/supervisor communication and higher quality turnout.
