Training Methodology

Our training is customized for each project to focus on the knowledge, skills, and attitude of the individual to provide them the skills and hands-on experience for that specific project and environment. This is achieved by means of consultations, demonstrations, trainer lesson presentations, role-play scenarios, performance drills, practical sessions, and “Teacher Drills”. Training is conducted on the “building block” principle where aspects mastered in previous sessions are continuously applied and assessed during subsequent training. Role play is extensively utilized simulating real world circumstances in practical scenarios. Under supervision of the Instructors the trainees act out all the duties and possible scenarios for each position. “Teacher drills” require trainees to “teach” the instructors to demonstrate their understanding and abilities of each lesson. Real life training takes place in a safe environment where the trainee has the opportunity to make mistakes, experiment, fail, adapt and try again with no consequence while providing the trainees with valuable experience before they are operationally deployed. Both students and supervisors provide written assessments of trainer lesson presentations which are used to make continuous improvements to the training programs. Supervision feedback is utilized as a training management tool to ensure that training objectives and outcomes are reached.

Training Quality Evaluations

Reed has a quality training evaluation system in place that takes into account the factors that can be translated into actual value for the client. Furthermore, it actively adheres to evaluation objectives that pertain to learning tenets. We constantly do on the job evaluations to confirm that what was taught is actually applied in the workplace. Our specialized personnel then immediately put corrective action in place where required.
