You Cannot Lose With Training – Maintenance WorldMaintenance World – An article source for reliability and maintenance management professionals

You Cannot Lose With Training – Maintenance WorldMaintenance World – An article source for reliability and maintenance management professionals.

Actually you can lose with training, but it can be rare, and greatly depends on the topic. Like at http://bin95.com we specialize in PLC Training and see most others providing PLC ‘training’ are teaching the worst way to perform certain task, that can cost millions in downtime and possible damage to man or machine. (I put PLC ‘training’ in quotation marks above, because we at BIN95 differentiate between just scholastic education and actual training. Just like we differentiate between just industry accepted standards and actual best practices.)

So while John Lambert’s article linked to above is a great resource, and generally accurate, just wanted to point out there are exceptions to the rule that “You cannot lose with training”.
