IMC-2017 Learning Session 49:34
by Clint Mileur, MetalTek, Inc.
During the five year period from 2015 to 2020 MetalTek will lose over 50% of its skilled trades and skilled trade supervisors. MetalTek has created a training program to take candidates with a maintenance aptitude and turn them into skilled trades to service our equipment in as little as 1 ½ years. The training uses commercially available software for the knowledge acquisition and mentorship of the trainee with the current aging work force to acquire the requisite skills and experience necessary to be successful as a skilled trade. All personnel entering the maintenance area receive a training program that closes the gap between what they currently possess and what is required for being successful at MetalTek.
