RJG’s Train the Trainer program is designed for those who fully intend to instruct others in their organization on the methodologies and techniques learned in their Master Molder training. Those who successfully pass the Train the Trainer program will have the title of Qualified Trainer and are then eligible to teach Injection Molding Essentials, Fundamentals of Systematic Injection Molding, DECOUPLED MOLDING® Workshop, Successful Strategies for Tool Launch, Mold Design, and Part Design within their organization. To be successful as trainers, candidates must have a strong DECOUPLED MOLDING® background and enough experience to be comfortable in front of a classroom.
The true value of this program is that Train the Trainer graduates gain the skills, tools, and confidence needed to successfully pass this knowledge on to others in their company. This is a great advantage for anyone directly responsible for implementing a training program. The strategies, DECOUPLED MOLDING® techniques, and implementation processes taught in RJG’s Master Molder® Series are emphasized in this course. Trainers will be coached in presenting a participant-centered approach that focuses on the needs of learners and incorporates creative training techniques.
This intensive, two-week training requires a huge commitment from every participant. They are required to teach others in the group daily in order to refine their training techniques. Each participant is evaluated daily by the instructor and entire class on their teaching skills, use of visual aids, and interaction with the class. They are also required to develop training materials to support their learning objectives, including minimal purchases to aid in getting their content across to the students. Each participant may conduct a hands-on lab session that encourages student participation and reinforces safety standards.
Prerequisites are in place to ensure only the top of the class graduates of the Master Molder® Series move into this phase of the program. The Train the Trainer endorsement is meant to allow the “best of the best” from the Master Molder® program to train others within their own company.
