April 23, 2018 | 9:30-11:30 AM CDT

SGA Webinar

The webinar will define the difference between training and learning and why it is critical in verifying competency in the workforce.  The true transfer of knowledge is needed for pipeline operators to bridge the generational gap, reduce skill erosion due to the silver tsunami and verify personnel are not only qualified but competent as well. 

  • Compare and contrast training vs learning and competence vs competency.
  • Identify learning strategies to implement within their organization.
  • Learn how to transfer knowledge more effectively.
