What Can You Learn in a 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader Course?

The 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader course is for people who investigate precursor incidents and, perhaps, major incidents (serious injuries, fatalities, major facility upsets, fires and explosions, or significant environmental releases). The course covers the essential TapRooT® techniques (SnapCharT®, Safeguards Analysis, the Root Cause Tree®, and the Corrective Action Helper®), and the optional tools (Change Analysis, CHAP, and Equifactor®) that are used in complex investigation.

In addition, the 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis course covers advanced interviewing and information collection techniques and techniques to improve human performance. There are frequent exercises using the TapRooT® Software so that attendees leave with significant practice of the skills they will apply when they get back to work.
