Technical & Non- Technical Training

Everything Your Team Needs to Step Up and Succeed

Our Approach

Valued employees don’t just do the job right – they treat supervisors, subordinates and peers right, too. Applying equal value to the two, PeopleCore’s Technical and Non-Technical Training develops competence and capability in the following areas:

  • Technical: plant operations, new hire fundamentals, and PSM
  • Non-technical: personal, interpersonal skills, leadership, and team building
  • Implementation of training systems

Implementation is where we see the majority of our clients flailing.  Training programs commonly utilize content that has been “reduced to writing,” with organizations assuming that excellent documentation will breed excellent behavior change – and results.  This is not the case in the real world, where pointed training and instruction are needed to transform documented intentions into reality.

Practically speaking, the PeopleCore difference is found in our ability to bring documentation and directives to life, transforming ideals into improved performance and interpersonal awareness.

These lessons aren’t absorbed off of paper alone.  PeopleCore training takes place on-site, on the job, for immediate application and takeaway.

Our technical training is intuitive, graphically driven, and pragmatic, guaranteeing results.

Our non-technical training is stripped of academic largesse that’s common among this material. It is organized to be intuitive so learners internalize meaning and find application on the job as a natural extension of the training.

All of PeopleCore’s training, technical and non-technical, is modular, so it can be utilized in a wide range of applications – from a targeted topic to an overall program. Our training can also be delivered through a variety of methods – including classroom, on-the-job, remote-virtual, and self-pace on-demand – as requested.
