Enhance Your Training Program

By working with many employers throughout the country, NIMS has identified 7 Smart Training Principles, which are universal and timeless constants associated with high performing training programs. These principles are further broken down into 56 training behaviors used to carry out on-the-job (OJT) training.  While universal, these principles and behaviors are not designed to be a one-size-fits-all. Each organization can adopt and prioritize the behaviors that meet their needs. This enable employers to develop highly customized training programs.

NIMS engages with employers by taking them on a journey to enhance their training programs. Each step within our engagement process has a fork in the road for employers to end their journey with a positive Return-On-Investment. Below are the steps:
