SamsonCORE’s technical training platform provides the right answers for both workers and employers.
Microlearning has become the preferred means by which companies now upskill their staff, for two good reasons.
Firstly, by breaking technical training down into bite-sized chunks, it helps learners to digest and retain information better. This is an approach that builds on an understanding of how people best learn, and is derived from cognitive psychology research that dates back as far as the 1950s.
Secondly, by adopting this short form training approach, companies no longer need to send staff away from work for days at a time to suffer death by PowerPoint. This is a far more practical solution – especially in this Covid hit era.
Learning in the flow of work
This means learning can now fit around everyday work, and teams can access the training they need when they are most engaged and willing to learn. This is what Josh Bersin refers to as ‘learning in the flow of work’.
SamsonCORE offers a technical training platform that builds on this concept. It is providing engineers with a highly visual, interactive platform that will support staff and help them broaden their skill set on the job, within their natural working environment.

This learning platform is replacing flat and boring technical documents that are difficult to decipher – and quickly become out of date. Instead, engineers get to work with 3D models that act as a digital twin of the machinery and equipment they are currently working with. These models can be moved around and manipulated by engineers to match the real-world view of the machinery in front of them.
How do employers benefit?
SamsonCORE also contains a work instructions module that explains how maintenance and repairs should be carried out – providing easy to grasp, step-by-step guidance. This allows them to practice taking apart and putting back together equipment in a hands-on way, without the need for support from their line manager or senior professional in their field.
This is allowing employers to provide workers with a learning that engineers will want to engage with and is more likely to lead to professional growth and development.

SamsonCORE is online and simple for manufacturers to update – employers can therefore be confident that their staff will always be given access to the latest instructions.
Furthermore, they can achieve all this without having to incur the expense of training days, which often includes the cost of travel and accommodation. For a global OEM, this will result in savings likely to run into the millions.
