Above was just one of two classes that we taught on the PotashCorp Rocanville Mine Site this week. Like many of our customers, they are going into full production with the newest version of our Web Enterprise Software. The students above were already trained in our process and wanted to learn how to use the new software upgrade in a 4 hour software class.

We also held a 2-Day Plus 3-Day TapRooT® Course. It is our 2-Day TapRooT® Incident Investigation and Root Cause Analysis and
5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader Training put together in one week. How does that work you may ask.. simple:

Have all students attend the first 2 days and then allow a select few employees who need to be lead facilitators and mentors stay for the remaining 3 days.

Brian Tink, taught this course with me and also got to go for a tour in the mine. If you have never been in a Potash Mine here is link to my first visit a few years back….

Interestingly enough I learned two things this trip. Just because your not at home in Tennessee does not mean that the heat will not follow you. We had a wonderful heatwave. A sizzling heat wave broke 16 records in communities across Canada Wednesday, despite cooler temperatures in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Markham, Ont., was the day’s hotspot at 35.9 C, breaking the record of 35.6 set back in 1991.

My second lesson is that when fishing for Wall-Eye or in Canadian words, Pic, as seen below, the man in the white truck with a badge, wants to know if you have a license…. and you can not fish within 23 yards of a dam. Do not ask me how I know.
