We have a very special place in our mind for the Police, but what about the rest of the SMP teams working on behalf of SMART training Solutions? “SMART” stands for “sole reliance upon evidence-based decision making”. This is the very heart and soul of the police role, and any mistakes made will be unacceptable. In the Police and fire force the “S” after SMP is a sign that we rely very much on our experience in making decisions. However, it doesn’t stop there, we must then build on this by continually educating ourselves about how we can improve and develop our decision-making skills so that we can all benefit from the knowledge gained.
As we work to transform our Police and Fire Force, we must also ensure that all of our staff and recruits are equipped with appropriate and relevant SMP training so that they are fully qualified for specific job roles. “SMART” stands for “specific job roles”. Training in this area is specific to each role. Therefore, when we refer to smart training solutions, we are all referring to an SMP course that has been tailored to the particular job roles within that organisation.
For example, the Police and Fire Consultants will have a totally different SMP requirement to a Motorcycle Industry SMP Contract Manager, who will have completely different requirements to a Road Traffic Accident Witness, yet both are fully qualified for the role. This way SMP courses have been developed so that specific job roles and processes can be fully assessed, providing maximum flexibility for training. This flexibility also means that when you need professional advice and assistance, it is possible to attend an SMP course in-house or use the SMPAAO website which offers a host of SMP training solutions tailored to suit the needs of your organisation. Using this system, you can tailor the training to suit the needs of your organisation. A further advantage of utilising an SMP training solution to meet your specific needs is the consistent nature of the delivery.
The next aspect of smart solutions is the use of tools and software to deliver the information directly into a format that is easily readable and understood by those charged with responsibility for delivering, controlling and evaluating this training. At the very least these tools should include a report generation facility, such as Microsoft Excel. At the most, these tools and software should include a spreadsheet and Power Point presentations. It is also worth considering the option to develop a QA or Quality Assurance site which will enable you to interact with prospective candidates and deal with any problems that may arise. Many organisations now use the internet as a tool to deliver this kind of information. For example, earlier this year the UK government announced that all government websites would include downloadable copies of the White Paper, supporting documents and other documents that may otherwise be beyond the reach of those charged with delivering, controlling and evaluating these websites. Let us know more information about SMART Training Solutions.
One of the other aspects of smart training solutions is the implementation of what is known as a “Rider’s Guide”. These guides provide detailed information on the various disciplines and legal obligations that are connected with the motorcycle industry. This is a vital part of making sure that the right people get the appropriate training and that regulations and requirements are complied with. While this is a value-added service, one must remember that it is only a guide and is not meant to replace the expert advice from legal experts or the Motorcycle Industry Authority. If there is a problem, the guide might be able to point you in the direction of someone who is able to help you resolve the problem. In addition, if you need additional advice or have a particular legal requirement, an expert rider may well be able to provide this assistance.
The other important aspect of smart training solutions is the assessment of training programs. As well as providing the motorcycle industry with information on the various courses that are available and what the legal obligations are, these assessments are used by companies and organisations to determine how they can make their training programs better for everyone involved. When companies are able to understand their training needs and develop courses that meet these needs, they will be able to ensure that they are fulfilling these goals and getting the most benefit at the same time. As well as helping motorcycle companies stay compliant with regulations, this type of assessment also provides another valuable service; that of informing companies and other organisations of courses and training opportunities which would otherwise have escaped their attention.
