Running Start Training

Our Running Start Training is a designed to help you optimise your classroom based learning. We believe that in most cases, classroom based training is just the beginning of the learning process. To fully appreciate and apply the knowledge learnt to your  projects is a critical component of your learning process. The process you go through comprises the three “E’s” of learning:

Education: Formal classroom based training

Exposure: This is when you are given opportunities to use your learning

Experience: This occurs over time as you apply your experience to more and more projects.

Our Running Start Training is designed to bridge the gap between your training and your work. We will bring the wealth of our own engineering experience from industry, to help you set up your projects and make sure that you apply the best practice principles taught to you during your classroom-based training. We aim to optimise your training and ensure that you apply it to your projects to achieve the best project outcome.

When you apply this augmented training to your projects, we have seen projects being accelerated, deadlines exceeded and improvements achieved in the product design itself and the design efficiency.

Each Running Start Training Program is specific and customised to your exact requirements. If you would like to receive more information or a quote, please contact us via online chat or call us on 01844 263700.
