Training Today’s Workforce

By Graham Provost, Schneider Electric |

Integrated console, virtual-reality simulation offers learning for maximum, measurable training efficiency Modern techniques are being used for realistic plant training for control room operators, field operators, and operations and maintenance personnel. Simulator training has been shown to result in better retention by participants than most other learning methods. This article describes these training platforms, when they should be used, and how to set up a performance-based competency grid. Simulation training and blended learning can be tied to an organization’s key performance indicators (KPIs) through a Personnel Effectiveness Model that utilizes simulation to maximize training value for time spent. To understand how to employ a Personnel Effectiveness Model, consider first that time spent in structured, measurable simulation training is significantly more valuable than time spent by any other learning method [ 1]. Simulator training achieves 78% retention, while the average of all other methods is 11.6% when blended equally (Figure 1). This means that simulator training is nearly seven times more effective than any other learning method, not including on-the-job training (OJT). In many cases, even OJT is unstructured and…
