Our Mission

For 15 Years Shephard's Has Specialized In Customizing Operator Training Programs For Industries Across North America And The Caribbean. From The Beginning We Recognized That Generic Training Does Not Fill The Need. 

Row 2
For years the industry standard for equipment operator training was, at best, to sit through a couple of hours of classroom instruction, watch a video of someone else's operations, and take a 20 or 25 question evaluation, and now you are an operator. This type of training has never been appropriate to ensure that a competent understanding had been reached by the operators.

Our mission as a training and consulting company is to provide the catalyst for our clients, that, in turn, will assist in the development and implementation of the most advanced management approved and site-specific employee safety and skills improvement training program(s) that meet and exceed their safety, training, and operational objectives.
Shephard's has been recognized by several National and International material handling publications for being on the leading edge of providing a consulting service for material handling operations and the development of real world, site-specific operator training programs for industries.

Case Study: Program Success

Row 2

Shephard's offers operator and/or Train-The-Trainer sessions to individual companies only, because of their confidential nature. We will not train multiple companies at the same time because individual company needs will not be addressed in this type of forum. Focusing our efforts on one company, or multi-facilities within one corporation, makes our training programs' success overwhelming.

Shephard's site analysis is designed to probe into the operations to find the real world needs for operational improvements and training. During the analysis safety concerns will be identified that, in some cases, must be attended to prior to implementing any training.

Our clients, who have implemented and maintained our training programs, reap the rewards of fewer incidents, decreased product damage, decreased equipment operating cost, increased profits, and meet their customers' quality and quantity needs by shipping damage free product.

They also enjoy a motivated workforce because of the reclaimed trust between management and employees. At the same time employees' skills and self-esteem are enhanced, confidence is increased, and they develop a team concept.

Let Shephard's Industrial Training Systems be your solutions to a safe and productive work place.

A Training Program That Is Complete


To expedite your safety and training goals, consider having a third party assessment of your operation by Shephard's. Our analysis system will walk your designated personnel through a systematic process to obtain information overlooked by your personnel. Many times we find small problems, but the root cause to more serious issues.

The old cliche, "don't open your mouth and speak before you think," holds true for training as well. How can a trainer accomplish a training goal without first understanding the needs.

Implementing operator training sessions without first observing the operations and understanding the needs is "putting the cart
before the horse."

Let Shephard's conduct an assessment per condition of your facility. Let the assessment give you the real results. Shephard's will provide the expertise and the research, and we will submit a written report of our findings including suggestions and solutions.

Research Development And Implementation

Row 2

Pre-training assessment, and development of Site-Specific training materials, using proven format, forms, and visual aids.

First:

Let's talk and make sure that our systems and your objectives are compatible.

Second:

With approval, let's evaluate the operations for conditions and understanding, and together set training goals and objectives.
Third:

If applicable, and with approved goals and objectives, Site-Specific training materials can be developed. Implementation of the training program will follow after the training materials have been approved.

NOTE:


Know this up front: the training program that we develop will be designed for initial certification (first time operators) and recertification (existing operators). Your program will last indefinitely, because we teach you how to modify your program with updates as needed.

FAQ
Row 1

Refresher Training And Commitment

Row 2

Low Incident Rate

Through implementation and followup, Shephard's training systems have drastically reduced our clients incident rate. We found that incidents declined in the first year of training. But without refresher training in succeeding years, complacency settles in, commitment shifts, and incidents increase. A company who stands firm on their commitment, follows up on their training programs, and has total involvement of management and employees will lower their incident rate. The old cliche of "once trained always trained" is of the old school.

Train The Trainer

Shephard's offers operator and/or Train-The-Trainer sessions to individual companies only, because of their confidential nature. We will not train multiple companies at the same time because individual company needs will not be addressed in this type of forum. Focusing our efforts on one company, or multi-facilities within one corporation, makes our training programs' success overwhelming.
