Training Presentation Well-received at Industry Events

Scott Shearer Jr. presented The Importance of “Why” for Effective Training: Techniques in SCSR Training at several events recently; the MTA (Mine Trainers Association) Conference in Mt. Vernon, IL on September 5, 2014 and the 2014 TRAM/National Mine Instructors Seminar held at the National Mine Health and Safety Academy in Beaver, WV on October 16, 2014.

His presentation focused on three aspects of effective training:

  • The Importance of Attention: How attention factors into effective training, and can improve learning.
  • Teaching the “Why”: Adults learn differently, and explaining the “why” can help improve training outcomes.
  • The “Why” of SCSR Training: How can you improve and refresh the topic of SCSR Training?
