    It is always important to get on-job training, when it'savailable. It is also crucial for overall plant productivity to have continuous training of your electricians, PLC technicians, or even your engineering and project management staff. That is why it is a very good notion to upgrade your academic background that oninsides with the inovative technologies, devices, and components. It is greatly important, if you can receive professional guidance on different topics on everehing related to reduction of downtime and learn learn within a short period of time. On-job training is not necessarily the best solution these days, as it's a very slow process compare to the progress of ever-changing technologies, processes, as well as new automation hardware and software. A crash courses that are offered by the Downtime Reduction School will make a noticeable difference to the knowledge level of the present maintenance crew and to a new hire.
