Key Technology Introduces Online Training Program

December 17, 2008
Key Technology has launched an interactive multimedia curriculum covering its optical inspection systems and vibratory conveyors. The flexible, Web-based program offers a wide variety of self-paced training modules designed for operators, maintenance personnel, sanitation crews, supervisors, and others working with Key’s sorters and shakers. By providing effective and consistent training, this online training program improves operating efficiencies while reducing training costs.

Training program modules are available immediately in English covering the many software-related G6 user interface topics that are common to all current Key sorters including Optyx, Tegra, Manta, and ADR systems, and G6-upgraded legacy sorters, as well as the many hardware-related topics specific to Optyx. Within the coming months, training modules will be added, covering hardware topics specific to all other current Key and Symetix sorters as well as Iso-Flo vibratory shakers. These training modules will be available in Spanish, French, German, Dutch, and Chinese later in 2009.

With as many as 50 training modules covering the various topics related to each sorter, customers can pick and choose the most suitable combination for each job position, tailoring the training program to focus only on the subjects of interest to those in that position. Each self-paced module is designed to take less than 20 minutes to complete and is followed by a test to verify the material is understood. To facilitate record keeping and proof of compliance with industry regulations and company policies, full reporting, via the Learning Management System (LMS), is delivered.

Compared to traditional in-person, on-site training, the online training program is affordable, self-paced, and available anytime, on-demand. This new program enables companies to easily train personnel as needed, before equipment is installed or when certification or re-certification is essential. Consistency is improved because all employees across the company, regardless of plant location, receive the same training. Training time is reduced and retention is enhanced since the program can be tailored to focus only on the topics suitable for each position.

In addition to the new Online Training Program, Key offers training via instructor-led Web conferencing and in-person, on-site, as needed.
