Learning Services

When you require sustainable results, you need expert guidance from the industry leaders in custom manufacturing training.

Tooling U-SME's Learning Services is a full-service consulting team that helps manufacturers develop effective training programs. We work side by side with your human resources and training leaders, management and front-line team members to build a training strategy that delivers measurable return on investment (ROI). We begin with observing and analyzing your workforce to identify the gaps that are preventing you from reaching maximum performance, as well as assessing your organization's readiness for building a learning culture. From there, we develop a complete strategy tied to your business goals.

Whether you're looking for a strong on boarding program, unbiased qualifications, standardized on-the-job training, or an ongoing assessment of workforce capabilities, we help you build an agile, high-performing and sustainable workforce by applying best practices in developing and qualifying workers through a fair system of measurement and validation.


Tooling U-SME's worker qualification framework develops and assesses workers' competencies to ensure they are performing safely and to the standards of the job. For each job within the organization, a tailored development plan is created to train and assess your workers in the critical knowledge and skills prior to conducting on-the-job-training (OJT). This includes strong on boarding, role-based learning, and critical skill development needed on the job. Then, a structured approach to OJT quickly qualities workers for assigned job duties. The proper mix oft training methodologies will rapidly develop workers so they can meet the performance expectations of their job.
