SECTION 1



TRAINING




The term training refers to the acquisition
of knowledge, skills, and competencies as a
result of the teaching of vocational or
practical skills and knowledge that relate
to specific useful competencies.

It forms the core of apprenticeships and
provides the backbone of content at
institutes of technology (also known as
technical colleges or polytechnics).

In addition to the basic training required
for a trade, occupation or profession,
observers of the labor-market[who?]
recognize today[update] the need to continue
training beyond initial qualifications: to
maintain, upgrade and update skills
throughout working life.

People within many professions and
occupations may refer to this sort
of training as professional
development.

ON
THE
JOB
TRAINING




Some commentators use a similar term for
workplace learning to improve performance:
training and development. One can generally
categorize such training as on-the-job or
off-the-job:

On-the-job training takes place in a normal
working situation, using the actual tools,
equipment, documents or materials that
trainees will use when fully trained.

On-the-job training has a general reputation
as most effective for vocational work.



OFF THE JOB TRAINING


Off-the-job training takes place away from
normal work situations implying that the
employee does not count as a directly
productive worker while such training takes
place.

Off-the-job training has the advantage that
it allows people to get away from work and
concentrate more thoroughly on the training
itself. This type of training has proven more
effective[citation needed] in inculcating
concepts and ideas.



TRAINING


Training differs from exercise in that
people may dabble in exercise as an
occasional activity for fun.

Training has specific goals of improving
one's capability, capacity, and performance.

ADVANTAGES
OF
OJT




It is cost effective for the employer
because the person continues to work
whilst learning.

Training time is reduced when compared
to traditional off site learning.

Structured OJT provides for evaluation
of employee progress and supports ISO
programs.

It has been tested for techniques
ranging from milking cows by hand
to brain surgery.

The US Air Force's Air University
Academic Instructor School has
found no faster teaching methodology
for any specialty.

Structured programs for training
multiple trainers, and for in house
training of new trainers exist and
are available from numerous providers.

These programs reduce the training
times of unstructured OJT by more
than 50% and reduce the perpetuation
of less safe and more costly production
techniques.
