is an interactive computer-based-training (CBT) program that
is custom designed to meet the training needs of the power generating
PowerCBT integrates text, graphics, animation, video, and sound that
engages the senses and allows people to interact with information in a
richer and more natural way. Trainees interact simply by being able to
engage with the training at their own pace. Because trainees work alone,
they can't fall behind or, conversely, be held back by the slow pace of
a group training session.
PowerCBT ensures consistency. While the information conveyed in live
training may vary from trainer to trainer and session to session, it's
consistent with computer-based-training.
PowerCBT provides training on-demand. CBT can be delivered where and
when needed. It will no longer be necessary to schedule shift personnel
to attend training away from their scheduled working hours.
PowerCBT also provides administrative controls and record keeping for
the Plant Training Coordinator or designee. The training coordinator is
able to control or change the exam data base, view the trainees progress
and print hard copies for standard employee files.
Standard administrative functions include:
1. Exam maintenance
2. Trainee enrollment and passwords
3. Reports that include:
Date entered course
Time in course
Sections completed and sections to be done
PowerCBT course content is custom-created by people with power and
industrial plant backgrounds, (not computer programmers). Course content is designed to match your specific plant training needs.
Considerable attention is given to ensure PowerCBT is compatible with
- Computer systems
- Training budget
- Training philosophy
- Corporate mission
is also flexible. Existing plant procedures, system
descriptions, and drawings (CAD) can be accessed and viewed within
object linking and embedding (OLE).
