Competitive Solutions delivers customisable work based training programs in process and production.

Our training programs will:

  • upskill your workforce in manufacturing plant operation and technology
  • create ideas and projects to drive improvements in your production process
  • enable participants to gain a qualification in process plant operations or process plant technology

Training Delivery

We deliver training through an action-based learning methodology that is unique to our program.

We use gamification (designing simulation activities to be more like games), work-based projects and one-on-one coaching with skilled facilitators to engage with people and transfer knowledge.

We believe it is the practical application of new knowledge that makes the difference.

Steps in the process

  • Interview all participants to determine existing attitudes, skill level and understanding of process and production concepts
  • Establish skills gaps and business training needs
  • Develop a customised training plan for participants
    • Strategy meeting – we report our findings at a meeting with management to agree on training focus and skill sets to be delivered with KPIs to measure training effectiveness.
  • Delivery of training to meet outcomes agreed at strategy meeting
  • Hands on learning activities to engage and stimulate learning
  • Develop a skills matrix to capture training delivered and ongoing training needs


  • Focus on improved processes to ensure sustainability
  • Further develop skills matrix and future road map to be handed over to the business


Our program can be customised for both technical and non-technical participants. While the core of the program remains the same, customisation occurs via a different training plans for each cohort and industry.
