Reduce turnover, deliver measurable improvements in productivity with the Training Within Industry (TWI) Job Instruction system.

TWI Job Instruction training is designed to develop basic stability of manufacturing processes (aka standardized work). Manufacturers who use Job Instruction in training gain the benefits of reduced training times while also lowering costs, reducing turnover, improving quality and increasing productivity.

April 17 to 21, 2023, 8:30am to 10:30 am daily


Manufacturing supervisors, team leaders, and workers


In this week-long certificate program, participants will learn a system that develops a stable process upon which to apply continuous improvement.

You’ll learn how to identify the “one best way,” teach to this one way, and thereby create a standard method.

Training Within Industry (TWI) is a dynamic and proven method of hands-on training, learning and coaching that was introduced in 1940 by the United States Department of War. It was originally developed to meet the high demand for wartime materials from a smaller and less-experienced workforce.

Today, with the “war for talent,” TWI remains relevant because of its unique methodology that empowers the frontline.
