Warehouse Training On Line

by Nigel Lewis on 2010-07-01

Subsidized, NZQA-registered warehousing training has been around for years – but now there is a new tool out there.

There is an on-line warehouse training system. Trainees can set themselves up and work through the modules in their own time.  

The aim is to help save companies time, expenditure, and perhaps most significantly, help your staff understand that the work they do is extremely important in making your business run smoothly.

www.trainingforindustry.com is written and managed from New Zealand but has launched internationally and is already getting 20 unique visitors per day.  The Level 2 qualification is available now and the Level 3 will be “all-go” by the end of January.

The programme is the brainchild of Norman MacIver.  “Many businesses experience difficulties in up-skilling staff due to budgeting and time constraints.  Training for Industry provides an affordable, easy to use, online training system.  Each qualification teaches industry skills and knowledge enabling a stead improvement in individual skills”, says Norman

After reading through the training material, students answer the assessment questions.  When they reach the standard, they are invited to move on the next module.

“Our experienced and registered course designers and assessors have developed a qualification that is approved by leaders in education and the distribution industry.

Students complete the training material in eight modules, one after the other. When students have passed all eight, their Certificate of Proficiency in Storekeeping is posted to them.”

The Level 2 qualification is available now and the Level 3 will be “all-go” by the end of January.  Level 4 (Warehouse Manager-level) will follow soon after.

    Wouldn't it suck if you ruined your workout before you even broke a sweat? Yes, yes, it would. So avoid these habits that can make your workout less efficient, enjoyable, and effective:

    1. You chug a ton of water before you work out
    . You know you need to keep the water coming on days when you work out. But if you down a whole liter of water before a workout, it will sit in your stomach and could lead replica gucci to nausea and cramping that makes you want to cut your workout short, says Amanda Foti, a registered dietitian from Selvera, a nutritional counseling company based in New York City. Drink a few sips before your workout (especially if it's first thing in the morning), and bring a water bottle to the gym to sip while you sweat. Just don't force it down.

    2. You sweat on an empty stomach. Your car doesn't run on an empty tank and neither do you. When you eat carbohydrates in particular, your body turns the food into fuel that your muscles store and release when you exercise, Foti says. Eat a small snack - like a low-fat Greek or regular yogurt, a low-fiber granola dior replica bar, whole-grain toast with a schmear of peanut butter, or a handful of trail mix - about 20 to 30 minutes before a workout to help you burn and use that stored fuel efficiently. If you work out so early in the morning that breakfast feels like a midnight snack, go for the bare minimum: a piece of fruit.

    3. You eat a Thanksgiving-size meal before your workout. While it might seem like a good idea to fuel up, then work off those seconds (and thirds) at the gym, digestion is hard work in and of itself: It drains your body of the energy it needs to pick things up and put things down at the gym. Plus fullness + treadmill = nausea. If you work out in the evening, do it after a snack (see above) but before dinner, Foti says.

    4. You lose sleep to hit the gym. When you skimp on sleep, your body has to work extra hard to keep things like your nervous system running smoothly, says louis vuitton outlet uk Kelvin Gary, certified head trainer and performance coach and owner of Body Space Fitness in NYC. This elevates your heart rate and tires you out even before you add weight lifting and cardio to the mix. And if you do power through? Lack of sleep can impact your ability to balance, focus, and burn calories efficiently, meaning you probably won't work as hard as you usually do. Instead of going through your workout like a zombie, sleep in and go to the gym later.

    5. You overdo it on the coffee. If you're used to drinking coffee, an eight-ounce cup of it can help you stay hydrated and boost your energy so you can work out for cheap swiss watches longer or at a higher intensity than you would without the caffeine boost, Foti says. However, people who don't regularly drink coffee or drink too much (Put. Down. The. Trenta.) could experience some icky digestive side effects, like the urge to sprint to the bathroom in the middle of class.

    Currently I am working as a picker/ packer. Do all the customer orders/ web orders but wonder if when I'm 65 will be capable of climbing ladders and lifting/ sliding 90 kg furniture. I have a degree from Za but totally different field. Further more I don't want to give up my job to study...

    Any suggestions?
