This is one of the higher level WCM training courses run as an integral part of the WCM TPM programme within an organisation. It is designed to build on other Total Productive Maintenance experiences and provide the skills and knowledge to help solve more complex or chronic site problems. The Course is designed to create focussed improvement practitioners who can lead (or be involved in) Focussed Improvement projects in their own Plant and support the implementation of WCM.
Candidates will be continually assessed / coached during the course. A written examination on the final day to check understanding is normally set based on the organisations discretion. Delegates who fail may be given an oral examination to clarify their understanding of the course.
The Course is normally residential on a factory site and run over 5 days (Monday to Friday inclusive) this excludes any travelling time.
To reinforce the knowledge gained on the course and to deliver benefits for their own site, delegates are expected to lead and complete a focused improvement project in their own factory within 100 days of returning from the course. Immediately following the course, the host site Black Caps are expected to complete the course FI projects and implement the solutions.
The Course normally has places for up to 12 delegates although larger courses are possible by negotiation. Delegates are usually ‘not’ from the host site due to the amount of course preparation / supervision.
