About this Workshop

This one-day workshop allows participants to discover the principles of effective evaluation through analysis of seven typical scenarios that cover the assessment of technical tasks. These scenarios are:

  • Shut Down Main Unit
  • Inspect Exposed Pipe
  • Perform Flame-Ionization Procedure
  • Test Meter Station Regulators
  • Locate And Mark Pipe
  • Start/Load/Stop Compressor Units
  • Test Relief Valves

After completing the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Prepare for and perform an evaluation
  • Observe the performance of technical tasks consistently and objectively
  • Appropriately use questions to aid in evaluation of competence
  • Recognize and avoid barriers to effective observation and evaluation
  • Evaluate acceptable task competence
  • Document an evaluation

This workshop includes little instructor presentation; rather, the instructor facilitates the process by which participants analyze and discuss the scenarios, and eventually to understand the process of evaluating technical tasks. In their discussions, participants will discover what to look for in the performance of an employee or contractor, observation skills and fairness in observation, effective questioning techniques, and how to avoid the common barriers to effective evaluation.

This workshop is offered in a one day format. The workshop focus is on real life case studies requiring participants to identify appropriate evaluation behavior, and make decisions on how to proceed. The workshop facilitator will take participants through the evaluation process, with an emphasis on fairness and consistency, and provides guidelines for handling a variety of situations that are likely to occur on the job.
