What can you expect from a training program? 

Below is an example of a newly recruited filling machine operator's competence development journey.

It starts with instructor-led training on the specific filling machine, followed by equipment coaching to support operators on the job when they face difficulty applying skills.

Then comes training on food safety and package evaluation and Tetra Pak PLMS data input, ensuring the operators can verify the final output package is of desired quality and can interpret and input appropriate PLMS data.

After around six months, the operator is assessed on a filling machine, and customised training is provided to address observed competence gaps. The journey concludes with operator certification.

Anytime learning (micro-learning videos) can further speed up the learning journey.

Helping businesses succeed.
See our case studies:

One of the plants had a high number of unsterility cases because operators lacked the skills needed to carry out proper cleaning of production equipment.

Customised assessment and training were developed to meet the specific needs of the plant, allowing for short and effective sessions.

By combining the assessment and training programme with parallel initiatives unsterility cases were reduced by 55%.
