Training and Development for the Engineering Industry
Training With L.I.T.S.
Over the years, L.I.T.S. has created close working relationships with employers, giving our learners the safest, most productive preparation to take their new skills into the workplace.
The strict development and evaluation process that our training goes through means that we understand employers’ and learners’ views, wants and needs. Feedback is actively encouraged, ensuring that we deliver exactly what you require in a manner that keeps learners interested and enthusiastic.
Whether your needs are specific, such as simply booking a single place on our short, tightly-focussed training courses, or more complex, for example arranging an in-plant development programme, we work with you to ensure that you gain the most from the training experience.
Our training moves away from the traditional whiteboard approach that is so often used. Of course, basic knowledge of key principles and safety issues form the foundation of competence, but we also believe that when teaching technical ‘hardskills’, it is essential that trainees receive as much practical experience as possible.
In addition, we ensure learners understand what they are doing, rather than merely perform a series of rehearsed procedures. This understanding allows for the skills and knowledge obtained through our courses to be applied to the different situations encountered in the workplace.
With this in mind, we keep our training groups small. Not only does this give each learner maximum opportunity to ask questions and receive personal attention from the trainer, it creates the best learning environment for practising the application of critical skills that is just not possible in larger classes.
Our training courses are designed to provide only the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding fundamental to underpin the required competence.
L.I.T.S. courses may be at the leading edge of technical training but most often, under the Health & Safety at Work Act, off-job technical training should be formally practised and assessed in the workplace. This is the only environment in which to gain the experience that precisely compliments the skills and knowledge gained through our training.
