A systematic approach to developing a highly-skilled workforce
The future of technical learning is changing more rapidly than anyone had previously imagined. And with so many new tools and technologies available for absorbing technical learning, tomorrow’s learners have a significant advantage over those of the past. From chatbots to touchscreens to photorealistic and dimensionally immersive virtual reality simulations, technical learners of the future will enjoy advanced learning in all areas of their jobs.
Few industries have more specialized and challenging technical training needs than aerospace and defense. Use of specialized machinery, fabrication of advanced materials and composites, and highly complex production processes require extensive training.
Complying with governmental, industry, and environmental regulations require stringent quality control and documentation procedures. Technical employees require constant updates on their training to keep pace with new and ever more complex technologies. Meanwhile, managers struggle to source and implement the right technologies to effectively manage global training. Perhaps the biggest training challenge for most aerospace and defense companies is fulfilling these training requirements within a manageable budget.
The ideal training solution for your needs
GP Strategies delivers a proven approach to achieve world-class technical training competencies seen in leading organizations. Based on years of on-site technical training experience, we provide the entire spectrum of technical training – from precision maintenance, craft skills, and operator care, to operations, reliability, and safety.
To begin, we conduct an in-depth gap analysis to determine the current state of your technical training versus where you need it be. From there we recommend the best design, courseware, and delivery to meet your company’s unique needs. To deliver maximum learning benefits, we craft customized technical training solutions that guide your workforce through four essential competency levels: Foundational, Fundamentals, Applied Fundamentals, and Site-Specific.
Our blended learning solutions include elements of eLearning, classroom and hands-on training with gamification, coaching and apprenticeship workshops, and more to offer long-term learning impact.
