Retain What You Pay for During Training

At this year’s World of Asphalt/AGG1 conference and expo at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, attendees have three days of courses from which to select education opportunities. Between the WOA’s People, Plants and Paving Conference, and AGG1’s Aggregates Academy alone, there are over 110 seminars and a couple forums/roundtables available. That means you could spend all day each day in classrooms listening to speakers help you learn new concepts or updates to tried-and-true concepts. That, my friends, is a lot of information to take in.

Back in November, Mr. T.J. Young of Duval Asphalt spoke at the Asphalt Contractors Association of Florida annual conference, and shared an intriguing concept he learned early in his career about the loads of information and education and industry knowledge we take in. His mentor taught him, “You can learn 80 percent of what you need to know in this business in about two years. It’ll take you another 20 years to get the other 20 percent.” Young referred to this as the 80/20 ratio during his presentation that day, making it clear to the audience that by training our work force to master the first 80 percent—the bulk of the knowledge necessary for quality production and quality paving—we can then drill down on the details that enhance and improve operations.

Maybe cramming the 80 percent into your brain is sufficient for you. But I think you attend, and send employees, to events such as ACAF’s conference and WOA/AGG1 to delve into the extra 20 percent.

What I think we can take away from Young’s talk in Florida is that our industry has a host of basic best practices that don’t take a long time to learn. We can get the good, solid, top quality testing, production, paving, maintenance and other practices into a new hire’s arsenal in a reasonable amount of time, and then raise expectations from there. It’s not good enough to stagnate at the 80 percent level. You send them to WOA and the like. And you want them to get the most out of the experience.

Since season shutdown, companies have flown their star employees to training centers around the country and have brought training consultants to their home offices in the name of improving quality for 2018 and beyond. Monthly sales of the Asphalt Paving 101 online course from AsphaltPro magazine have more than doubled, and OEMs offering training at their facilities report sold-out classes in the first quarter of the year. This means companies care about educating their workforces. How do you ensure the time you spend in the chair translates to better practices in the field? Now, with a course like the one from AsphaltPro, you have the option to watch the videos over and over as often as you need to. But when you get to Houston—or the OEM’s training center—you have a finite number of minutes in front of the instructor.

How do you ensure the training you engage in sticks? Let’s turn to the fields of education and healthcare for some tips and tricks to get the most out of the dollars you spend on training your employees.

A host of university and college prep sites suggest new students talk about what they’re learning, and talk about it right away. An education industry blogger, Marianne Stenger, wrote for OpenColleges that “[d]iscussing what you’ve learned, whether immediately or a few days down the line, is important because it forces you to actively process the material…whenever possible, try to participate in group discussions where you’ll have the opportunity to go over the material you’ve learned, gain new perspectives and discuss any potential misunderstandings.”

This means the 15-minute break after learning a new, complex concept isn’t necessarily the time to plan bar-hopping in Houston; it’s the time to talk about the new, complex concept. If that sounds harsh, consider who’s paying for your time in Houston. Is it the asphalt company for whom you work? Then you’re on company time in between educational sessions, just as you’d be on company time in between haul truck arrivals at the paving site; talking about improving your paving skills is not far-fetched.

Ameritech College of Healthcare listed six methods that are proven to help college students retain information. I’ll paraphrase them here:

  • Teach the information to another person. By explaining a concept to someone else, you have to truly understand it yourself. ( stated “learners” retain about 90 percent of what they learn when they immediately turn around and teach it to someone else.)
  • Learn/train during the time when you are most alert. This means you get in tune with the times of day when you’re at your best.
  • Focus on one topic at a time. This means multi-tasking isn’t always the best option when trying to learn something new.
  • Take time to learn bits and pieces, rather than rushing through reams of material.
  • Write down notes. The tactile experience will help you kick different parts of your brain into gear. You can also read aloud or repeat a concept out loud—see method #1 above—to engage a different part of your brain.
  • Personalize what you’re hearing/learning to make it more interesting to you and easier to remember.

You’ve got this perfect opportunity to meet with manufacturers on the tradeshow floor in the convention center. You’ve got this perfect opportunity to take notes and ask questions during the seminars and sessions. You’ve got this perfect opportunity to discuss and share information and new concepts so that you cram more than the base 80 percent into your brain for the upcoming season. You’ve got this.
