Training as a Resource...

Recently I was at a customer site and they had many older training materials sitting the the training room unused...

HR
We plan on keeping all these materials here as before so they can be used as a resource while people use your training.

My Response
Training materials are only useful when they are incorporated into the overall training plan. As a rule, employees will not open a book or take training unless they are directed to do so. They are typically too busy to just sit down and read books or take training unless it is requested of them. Believe it or not, if the training is captivating, relevant, and self paced, employees will be very interested in taking training when asked to do so.

Additional Thoughts
It is better to fill your training room with instructional aids such as part prints, sample defects, and work instructions.
