Training: An Ongoing Education

Yesterday, Micky (Northeast Area Manager) and I did a training session at a customer site. We primarily did color theory training and instrument operator training on their Color Touch PC.


This reminded me of the importance of ongoing training. Many times we are exposed to certain applications or areas of knowledge an lose some of it (or ALL of it) over time when we don't come across that opportunity for a while. In other cases, we just don't know what we don't know.

Training can come in the form of conversation, reading, video, seminar and even searching the web.  An update, refresher or training outside our area of expertise can often lead to a new level of understanding and knowledge.  This is especially true when we receive training in a group setting. People with a different perspective or area of interest will ask questions that we would not otherwise be exposed to.

As Albert Einstein said, "Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death."

What kind of training/learning do you prefer?
  1. Conversation
  2. Reading
  3. Video
  4. Seminar
  5. Web search
