Status of Phased Reopening of TapRooT® Training

We’re pleased with the progress of our phased reopening of TapRooT® training. We started the reopening by developing live online webinars, and now we are on to the next phase, resuming our public and onsite courses.

Safety guidelines for public courses

We successfully completed our 2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Training in Calgary, Canada with all of our new guidelines in place for the safety of our students and instructors.

The guidelines going forward include:

  • Picking locations that are not hot spots and that have declining trends.
  • Reducing the number of course attendees we allow to register.
  • Social (physical) distancing in the classroom.
  • No group activities (exercises will be individual).
  • Plated lunches.
  • Reminding attendees not to attend if they have any type of illness/fever or have had recent contact with a COVID infected person.
  • Encouraging attendees to wear masks.
  • Use of hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes.
  • Using a local instructor if possible (our instructor for Calgary was from Calgary).

For onsite courses, we look forward to accommodating the safety protocols in place at each facility.

What courses are included in the phased reopening of TapRooT® Training?

Below is a schedule of:

  • our exclusive 2-Day Courses on special topics (seldom offered)
  • upcoming public 2-Day and 5-Day TapRooT® Courses
  • important information about onsite TapRooT® Courses.

Since we are reducing the number of attendees at our upcoming public courses, register early.

Onsite Courses

Due to COVID-19, our scheduled onsite courses were postponed. We are working hard to get all courses rescheduled. If you are interested in holding TapRooT® Training at your facility, please don’t wait to contact your TapRooT® representative to reserve dates on our calendar. If you don’t have a representative, contact us for a quote.

Step-by-step and with the new processes in place, we look forward to the next phase of reopening!
