In just 5 days, you’ll learn TapRooT® to find and fix the root causes of incidents, accidents, quality problems, precursors, operational errors, hospital sentinel events and other types of problems. Techniques include: SnapCharT®, Root Cause Tree® & Corrective Action Helper® plus additional advanced topics such as CHAP, Human Engineering, Interviewing, Safeguard Analysis and Proactive Improvement.

Whether you’re a TapRooT® expert or a beginner, there is always something new and exciting to learn at our 5-Day course. Once you’ve completed the course, you will receive a training certificate and a 90-day subscription to TapRooT® VI. Be sure to bring a safety incident or quality issue when you attend the course.

Experience Cape Town
Start your exploration with a early morning trek up Table Mountain and take in panoramic views of the city. Ascend the mountain by hiking or via cable car. You’ll be atop one of the New Seven Wonders of the World!

Cape Town is brimming with adventure, culture, and culinary arts. The original city of South Africa, Cape Town was established in 1652 as a refueling station for ships sailing the Spice Route. As it gave birth to civilization, the city is called “the Mother City” by locals and travelers.

If peacefulness, beauty, recreation, nature, and bird-watching are high on your list, jog, hike, or picnic at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden or Green Point Park. Cycle, fish, swim or get into water sports at a beach or nature reserve such as West Coast National Park. Find more gardens and parks here.
