Training Analysis and Needs Assessment

Training can be defined as the development of a person’s knowledge & understanding. They then have to coupled that with their overall behaviors in the workplace that results in the required performance of their job role”.


With limited time and resources, organizations are often challenged with determining what training is most critically needed and will have the greatest impact. Our team conducts Training Needs Analysis or Training Program Assessments to help define critical knowledge, skills and abilities for specific job roles or areas. We also work with organizations to identify key competencies required to safely and reliably perform those roles including:

  • Decision Making – for low and high-risk task or activities
  • Cognitive Abilities – thinking, reasoning, and remembering
  • Situational Awareness – understanding normal and abnormal events
  • Communication Skills – active listening, understood response and confirming
  • Behaviors – mindset and understanding the “how” and “why”

Once the key competencies are defined, our team can evaluate training programs currently in place and recommend enhancements or revisions with additional training to meet the needs identified in the analysis. We also look at specific industry standards, regulations, and recorded critical incidents along with company-specific standards, policies, and incidents to determine what additional training would be necessary to address specific operational hazards, risks, and requirements.
