Major U.S. Auto Manufacturer
Installing a safety culture in the workplace. A major U.S. auto manufacturer experienced a boiler accident that resulted in the death of six workers and seriously injured 14 others. As a result of an OSHA settlement, the company was required to initiate a company-wide program to include operational and safety training to ensure compliance with national safety standards and industry best practices.
In a competitive bid process, NTT Training was awarded the task of delivering the appropriate safety and compliance training. NTT Training developed and coordinated the training for over 30 plants within North America and Mexico that needed to maintain a 24-hour operating schedule. To successfully deliver the client’s training requirements, NTT Training’s approach included the selection and training of a core group of instructors to ensure the quality and consistency in the delivery of the customized training program content, while establishing a focal point for relaying specific client company policy and procedures. The training content was modularized to enable delivery in segments, which maximized their flexibility to handle a 3-shift work schedule. NTT Training trained around the clock, accommodating partial shift coverage. The client never had to cease operations to implement this training. In total, NTT Training delivered customized training to 505 people in 31 classes. NTT Training continues to fulfill training needs to this client.
Major U.S. Auto Manufacturer
Averting disastrous outcomes for employees working around hazardous or energized environments. Executives at an automotive manufacturing company recognized the value of preventative training, so they worked with NTT Training to conduct a series of electrical safety training programs for employees exposed to high voltage settings and for employees in industrial electrical environments.
The training and the conveyance of that all important “Safety Attitude” paid off within a very short time. The training programs conveyed a real sense of the importance of maintaining safety vigilance. A worker averted a potentially disabling or possibly fatal accident. While replacing a fuse in an unmarked cabinet, he recalled the NTT Training Electrical Safety training program that he had attended the day before. According to the worker, the training program prompted him to take precautions above and beyond the required safety level. Those precautionary steps may have saved his life. He paused long enough to access the potential hazards of the unmarked cabinet and he decided to err on the side of extreme caution. He suited up in level two P.P.E. gear. As he turned on the switch, an arc of electricity blasted his face, rendering him sightless for 30 seconds. His protective gear was hot and his mask was blackened, but he was able to walk away without any permanent damage.
This story of disaster averted is just one of thousands incidents that occur across a variety of industries—many of them with tragic outcomes. Companies are very quick to note how employee training was the reason that the employees were not seriously injured or killed. To be effective, the training received needs to foster an attitude of professionalism in students that emphasizes a “Safety Attitude”— a profound respect for the safety issues surrounding their particular discipline. NTT Training delivered training that motivated employees to adjust their behavior to work safer and smarter.
International Paper Product Manufacturer
Production quality control and developing a safety culture.
An international container manufacturer was seeking to train their employers to improve skill sets, workplace effectiveness and efficiencies along with safety awareness.
The company had a corporate culture where training was valued. The challenge was to deliver training in ways other than on-line or cd based. NTT Training’s large variety of hands-on training options enabled this company to select topics that were relevant to their particular needs. Training was delivered in the areas of Variable Frequency Drives, Troubleshooting Electrical Control Circuits, Hydraulics, and Programmable Logic Controllers in introductory and advanced level applications. NTT Training was able to be their single source provider ensuring the smooth delivery of a wide variety of training topics that were delivered hands-on.
International Snack Food Manufacturer

An international food manufacturer and distributor needed to define their electrical safety policies internally and locate a training provider with a large amount of experience in their many areas of concern which included high and low voltage electrical systems.
NTT reviewed the needs of all of their facilities, thereby helping them define appropriate policies regarding electrical safety standards and determining training expectations and levels of delivery. NTT Training developed a standardized training program that was deliverable to over 30 facilities working within a 24/7 schedule of employee availability. NTT Training was able to deliver a complete and thorough enterprise-wide training program that was completed within a six month period.
The corporation was pleased with the fact that NTT Training reviewed and thoroughly analyzed their particular needs and integrated their concerns into the training delivery. The union groups present in this corporation gave NTT Training a strong endorsement calling it “The best training we have ever had.”
National Poultry Provider
Company-wide electrical safety compliance.
One of the countries largest poultry providers was seeking to train their employers to improve safe work practices around electrical systems. Because of the diversity of operational functions and the vast number of locations within this corporation, they wanted to be assured that the training experience for all employees would be standardized.
NTT Training was presented to this company by an employee that had prior experience with the safety training as a student. Now, in his role as a decision maker, he wanted to provide his employees with the quality training experience he had been given by NTT Training. Members of his corporation were invited to observe the training that was conducted at his facility. They invited NTT Training to train at their respective facilities. NTT Training became their preferred training provider in the area of electrical safety and is now developing an enterprise-wide training program to address their mechanical and electronics applications.

NTT Training was also able to address the divergent needs and concerns of the facilities’ personnel while delivering quality training that was enthusiastically received by the employees.
National Chemical Manufacturer
Improving and regulating performance quality.
A large multi-national chemical manufacturer needed to provide training to constantly traveling groups of instrumentation technicians. The challenge was to deliver high quality and systematized training for a variety of levels of expertise in a variety of locations.
NTT Training crafted a hands-on training solution that blended the mechanical and electrical topics of concern into a specialized, 5 day curriculum that was delivered across the nation in locations convenient to the technicians. The curriculum was developed with all client concerns specifically targeted and addressed.
International Mining Corporations
Clients were faced with a shortage of skilled workers which negatively impacted production levels. Initial efforts to work with local community colleges as their primary training resource proved ineffective as these institutions lacked instructors and curriculum sufficiently advanced in the subject matter, and inadequate equipment to facilitate the training.
Regional facilities for several international corporations were all facing the same difficulty in balancing existing production levels against a tight labor force. NTT Training traveled to their locations to gain a greater understanding of their individual needs and policies.
NTT Training assisted them in developing a thorough training program that not only improved the skill sets and effectiveness of their respective workforces, it also quickly brought on-line new workers.
NTT Training’s program was uniquely tailored to the variety of challenges facing their respective industries. The training covered topics as diverse as hydraulics, electronics, welding, PLCs, safety and compliance, fiber optics, mechanical systems maintenance, National Electrical Code® topics and more. NTT Training provided the in depth knowledge and scope of curriculum to be able to perform as the single source training provider for these companies.
Additionally, NTT Training demonstrated a high degree of proficiency and flexibility in its ability to administer customized, On-Site training within a tight delivery window, at a reasonable cost. None of these corporations could afford downtime, so the training schedules for over 200 people were successfully implemented while having a minimal impact on operations.
Corporate and Subcontractor compliance and consistency. A division of a worldwide energy producing corporation operating in the United States needed to have employees and multiple subcontractors receive standardized electrical safety NFPA 70 E compliance training to ensure safe operation in hazardous and offshore environments.
NTT Training was selected from a field of training providers to take on the challenge of implementing an NFPA 70E based electrical safety training program that would be able to effectively accommodate the schedules and budgets of the primary client and their subcontracted employees.
NTT Training was selected based upon the experience level of the instructors assigned to the program, the flexibility of the implementation schedule and the opportunities to realize savings by grouping the company employees and subcontracted workers into training groups. Over 200 workers were successfully trained in the first group scheduled. A hundred more workers were successfully trained in the second group.
Corporate-wide roll-out to implement appropriate Safe Electrical Work Practices and impact work culture change.
A leading aggregate producer in the United States falling under MSHA jurisdiction sought to standardize an electrical safe work practices policy across multiple operational locations. Integral to the success of this project was cultural acceptance of NFPA 70E standards throughout the ranks of each location.
NTT Training was approached by this corporation by referral and through standing reputation as a quality training provider. The client initially sought to have employees receive electrical safety NFPA 70 E compliance training that would pertain to the identification of a “Qualified” Person. As cultural questions arose regarding MSHA requirements, practical impacts on operations, and corporate policy, the scope expanded to include training that would give managers an overview of compliance requirements, and also awareness level training for “non-qualified” persons. NTT Training was able to become the training provider for this corporation by designing a flexible training delivery that met their need for a customized breakdown of the core compliance material to relate to the different needs of the managers and the staff. NTT Training worked out a special pricing structure that accounted for the volume of training that the client was requesting.
Municipal Water District
Improving and optimizing employee performance. A regional water authority was seeking convenient and cost effective training options for multiple employees in a variety of mechanical and industrial systems topics.
The water authority went on-line to look for a single source training provider for their employees. Among the key reasons why NTT Training was selected to be the training provider were the broad range of mechanical and industrial systems training program topics that NTT Training offered and the fact that, unlike most training providers, the delivery was Hands-On. They approved a training series that included the topics of hydraulics, bearings and lubrication, mechanical drives, shaft alignment and hoisting and rigging. The client had prior experience with training offered by manufacturers, and wanted to have a training program that was more focused on delivering the fundamentals of a given topic, instead of delivering a product sales pitch.
NTT Training successfully structured a thorough Hands-On training delivery that was application-based, on trainers provided by NTT Training that replicated actual workplace situations. The attendees, and the training manager were very pleased with the quality of the training. The instructors were able to effectively address multiple levels of expertise. The training manager was very happy with the flexibility of scheduling around their work day and the special pricing that they realized which was based upon the number of classes that they had requested.
The client expressed that NTT Training had taken a “personalized” approach to organizing their training experience. This client has scheduled ongoing training with NTT Training and often refers others to participant in new NTT Training programs.

Improving a variety of employee skill-sets in multiple locations. A regional water authority needed to locate training in Variable Frequency Drives , as well as safety and compliance topics for two different locations, for 100 students within a very short time frame.
This client approached NTT Training for training because they had favorable experiences with NTT Training in the past. This time the client had the logistical complication of coordinating multiple training topics for two separate facilities within a few weeks. NTT Training was able to successfully provide the type of Hands-On training that the client required and deliver it within the prescribed timetable. The client was very pleased with NTT Training’s willingness to work with them to organize the training around complicated work schedules and quick timetables for completion.
In addition, because of NTT Training’s GSA approved status, the client was able to benefit from NTT Training’s GSA discount, as well as receive a discount in pricing based upon the staging of multiple training sessions.
Improving employee efficiencies. This government agency needed training to make sure their personnel could operate and maintain newly installed hydraulic equipment properly. They were reluctant to employ training offered by the manufacturer, citing a need for their personnel to learn fundamental hydraulic principles as opposed to focusing on the attributes of a specific type of equipment.
The client had prior experience with NTT Training and asked NTT Training how they would approach the training of their employees. NTT Training instructors reviewed the equipment manuals for the machinery and made adjustments to their Hydraulics curriculum to focus on the specific concerns of the client. They were very pleased with the blend of fundamental hydraulics principles and the ability of NTT Training to customize the training experience to account for the details of their facility’s equipment—without the sales bias.

NTT Training arranged a special On-site for the client, saving them money and further elevating their investment in an ongoing partnership with NTT Training for their training needs.
National Chemical Company
Needed an employee to make up unfinished training. A global specialty chemical manufacturer needed to reschedule an attendee half way through a training session.
An employee was needed back at their plant for an emergency half way through his electrical safety training. NTT Training located an NTT Training publicly held training program nearby for the client to attend to complete his training—with no additional charge. The employee was unable to attend that session due to another work conflict and the next publicly held training program would not be back in his area until five months later. NTT Training had another corporation that was conducting the same type of training in the area and arranged to have the employee complete his training with employees of the other client.
The chemical company was thrilled with the initiative that NTT Training had taken to ensure that the client got all of the training that they had paid for and wrote:
“This type of working with a client is why I plan to use your company for any other electrical training that I schedule. Believe me, I am well aware that sometimes something unexpected comes along that impacts a client/customer. You and the others at NTT have worked very hard to accommodate us when we had to schedule the additional training here due to our problem, and I see you are continuing your efforts in this case. I appreciate it. Again, thank you very much for your efforts.”
