Job Instruction Training for Supervisors, Area Leaders, and Job Skills Trainers

Course Duration: 2 Days - 8 Hours/day

This two-day workshop is intended to provide supervisors with the skills necessary to rapidly and effectively train new workers to perform a job precisely, correctly, safely, and conscientiously.

Job Instruction (JI) training is designed to develop basic stability and standard work for your processes. This workshop teaches the method to instruct the worker on how to perform the work as designed and intended and to coach the individual by using different methods. Job Instruction training identifies the “single best way,” and teaches this process to create a standard method for conducting the work. JI is the basis for stability that is generated by doing the same thing the same way across operators and shifts.

By utilizing Job Instruction, you gain the benefits of consistent training and also develop a stable process to apply continuous improvement upon. This lays a solid foundation for any continuous improvement program and is especially beneficial for visualizing opportunities to improve the process.

Benefits experienced when practicing the Job Instruction program are reduced training time, less scrap and rework, fewer accidents, and increased job satisfaction.
