Job Instruction Training (JI) teaches supervisors how to quickly train employees to do a job correctly, safely and conscientiously. The objective of the course is to help supervisors develop a well-trained workforce; have less scrap, rework and rejects; have fewer accidents; and have less tool and equipment damage.
The method emphasizes preparing the operator to learn, giving a proper demonstration while identifying the Important Steps and the Key Points of the job, having the operator perform a trial run, and tapering off coaching while continuing to follow up.
The course is structured in five two-hour sessions in five consecutive days for 8 - 10 participants, all supervisors (team, cell, group leaders etc.).
In the first session of each course, the trainer presents a real-world problem that everyone can easily relate to and shows the poor ways in which these problems are usually handled in the workplace. The TWI “4-Step Method,” is introduced to show how supervisors can handle such problems more effectively to gain better results.
The first two sessions focus on learning the methods. The remaining course time is given to participant presentation of actual and current problems participants handle by applying the TWI 4-Step Method. Unlike any other training, the TWI “learn by doing” methodology requires participants to put what they learned in class immediately to use in the workplace.
