32 Years of TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Training in Pictures

Across The Years, Around the World

Who’s that in the opening picture? That’s Linda Unger teaching one of our first TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Courses in Scotland. I would guess that it is about 1994.

Pictures of Three Decades + of TapRooT® Training

Well, this is what I looked like at the start in about 1990…

We don’t have any pictures of the courses we did for Philadelphia Electric (our first client), the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (our second client), or Chevron Richmond Refinery (our third client), but we have lots of other pictures from courses over the years.

See if you find yourself at one of our public TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Courses or maybe an on-site course at one of your facilities.
