Made-to-measure learning.

Closing the skills gap is essential for manufacturers to stay competitive. Effective assessment of knowledge is a critical first step in your overall training plan.

Create tailored schedules with self-paced delivery.

At Tooling U-SME, we know exactly what you need. Our assessments allow you to align competencies, curriculum, and the needs of individual workers so they can study their specific courses in a self-paced learning environment.

Align classes to your requirements.

Directly align your training with the competencies you require. Using the Tooling U-SME Competency Framework, you set the competencies necessary for your specific workplace. Assessment questions are derived from our extensive course libraries, which are fully mapped to our industry-proved curriculum.

Eliminate unnecessary classes.

Pre-filter each course schedule to meet individual needs. Based on the results of the assessment, each person’s schedule can be set to include classes that address gaps and eliminate those that are unnecessary. Individual customization optimizes and expedites training.

Evaluate effectiveness.

Post-Training Assessments, similar to the Pre-Program Assessments, are directly mapped to the competencies required and the curriculum taught. Learning progress is measured objectively, allowing for clear, concise reporting that can be linked to ROI.
