MT Shop Basics is a perfect cloud-based training solution for onboarding new-to-manufacturing employees or reskilling existing personnel who are shifting into a more technical role within your organization. The 48-class suite covers the basics of machine tools, cutting tools, workholding, quality control, and manufacturing process fundamentals, plus shop math, blueprint reading, GD&T, and more. In this unique package, the learner completes 43 pre-selected classes and five additional classes of his or her preference, such as Set-Up Reduction, Intro to Robotics, Advanced Lean Metrics, and more. Most learners complete all 48 classes in two to three weeks. - Classes require approximately one hour to complete and include a vocabulary list, pre-test, and final exam. - Classes are text-based with audio voice-overs, video examples, photos, diagrams, and illustrations. - Learners may take virtual notes that are saved to the learning platform. - All classes are self-paced, and progress is auto-saved as the learner moves through each lesson. - Learners have one year to complete the suite. During that time, learners may revisit classes even after they are complete. As with all MTUniversity courses, learner progress is tracked and completion results are reported to training managers, HR managers, or other managers and company principals. Successful completion of the Technology Fundamentals Suite results in a custom certificate of completion.
