According to Andy Baker, strategic account manager at Byrne Tool + Design, "By tesƟng and quanƟfying the value of our employees' training and skills, we are able to provide employees with a clearer learning path and a real sense of accomplishment." Baker further explained that the Skills CerƟficaƟon program is a great way to build, and test, an apprenƟceship program and provides guidelines for mold building operaƟons to evaluate their training curricula. "At first, employees were hesitant about taking the tests unƟl they learned they would have access to an outline before tesƟng to use as a study guide," said Baker. "Now, tesƟng has provided an atmosphere of friendly compeƟƟon, and...a sense of pride in knowing they have mastered the skills. It pushes the envelope on engagement, which can have a direct effect on retenƟon."
