In the LeanTrix system, the development of employee competences within the TWI program consists of 4 stages:
Stage 1. Certificate of completion of training – gaining knowledge and theory basics from training carried out by a TWI Trainer or an external training company, or by watching an instructional video in the LeanTrix system. A TWI Trainer in the system has access to Train-the-Trainers materials, which support him in conducting effective training.
Stage 2. Practice – training of skills under the supervision of a TWI Trainer. In this stage, a purpose is determined for each employee, for example: execution of 3 Standardized Work Instructions and also one operation of kaizen improvement analysis. In this stage, a TWI Instructor candidate is in constant contact with a TWI Trainer through the LeanTrix system.
Step 3. Obtaining a license – this stage means that the person has acquired a TWI Instructor license. This license is also associated with a responsibility for training people. In order to pass this stage it is necessary to train, at least twice, another employee in actual working conditions. This is done under the supervision of a TWI Trainer, who uses an audit form designed in the system.
Step 4. Train-the-Trainers course – this is not a mandatory stage. It applies to people who apply for the status of TWI Trainer. This stage is associated with the responsibility for other people and not only for own work. There is an instructional video for TWI Trainers in the LeanTrix system, and thanks to this they can be trained to individually guide a practical workshop on standardization of work.
