TWI Program: Job Instruction (JI) Training


“We are what we repeatedly do.

Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.”





The TWI Job Instruction (JI) program trains supervisors in how to instruct a person to perform a job correctly and safely; and to be productive as quickly as possible, while creating less scrap, rework, and damage to tools and equipment. 


This tried and tested methodology is based on the 4-Step Method of Job Instruction and utilizes tools such as the Job Breakdown Sheet and Training Timetable. These work standards then provide the foundation for employee engagement, continuous improvement and problem solving.


As a trainer/coach, you will learn how to set the stage for instruction, effectively demonstrate the task, observe and coach the operator and taper off coaching with proper follow-up. Benefits experienced when practicing Job Instruction are reduced training time, less scrap and rework, fewer accidents, and increased job satisfaction.

(NOTE:  Our TWI training materials are closely based on the original TWI training manuals developed by the TWI Service.)
