Upcoming Training Classes
True North Consulting provides training with respect to most Engineering Programs. Our training courses can be conducted from our home office location in Montrose, Colorado, at a designated hotel or similar training facility, or conducted at client facilities and coordinated with site training requirements to ensure applicable credit is recorded.
We offer comprehensive courses addressing the full spectrum of topics across a particular Program as well as advanced, issue specific, courses. Our courses are generally modular based consisting of three primary modules delivered independently, in combination or as a blended comprehensive course. The three primary modules used as the comprehensive course foundation are as follows:
|Engineering Module||Program Ownership Responsibilities (Program Owners, Responsible Engineers)|
|Operations Module||Program Implementation Responsibilities|
|Management Module||Higher Tier Responsibilities (Managers, Supervisors)|
The Engineering Module is structured to convey a thorough understanding of the subject Program. It is intended to provide a foundation for decision making related to all associated programmatic aspects. This module discusses philosophical decisions associated with program development, review of source documentation and its application, and awareness for common programmatic pitfalls. Typically a three-day minimum course.
The Operations Module is geared toward individuals tasked with Program implementation responsibilities targeting broad based program knowledge with detailed knowledge of program structure, purpose, and execution techniques. Completion of this module will provide a sound basis for understanding why tests are performed, when tests need to be performed, the basis for test acceptance criteria, and impact / interface with other plant programs. This is typically a two-day course.
The management module is a higher tier course conducted over a shorter period. It provides a cursory Program overview and briefly discusses many of the aspects / issues identified in the Engineering Module. It focuses on managerial personnel requiring an understanding of program basis, conduct, and potential plant impacts as well as regulatory pitfalls. Source documentation, program philosophy, and interface with other plant programs are highlighted. Typically this is a half-day course.
Comprehensive courses, integrating the above three modules and additional program specific content are provided over a four-five day period.
Topic Specific/Advanced Courses
Topic specific or advanced courses are normally conducted in a single day or afternoon session. These courses are often included as add-on sessions following a comprehensive course but are also available on a stand-alone basis.
Our training courses can be conducted from our home office location in Montrose, Colorado, at a designated hotel or similar training facility, or conducted at client facilities and coordinated with site training requirements to ensure applicable credit is recorded.
