Don’t Exclude the Engineers…

I was in recent discussions with a company and heard this statement…

I doubt the engineers want to take any of this training since it is for production personnel.

My Response
Don’t count out your engineers… just because they have a degree does not mean they are done learning. Typically, the engineers will take all the courses available to them, to both learn more about topics relevant to them and to better understand what everyone else is learning.
Additional Thoughts
I have one molding manager who tried to exclude the engineering group from some of the advanced processing courses and send emails to him in protest. He later said to me “I didn’t even think they going to use the system, but now they are driving the initiative,”.
