Pro hand-tool manufacturer Wright Tool recently launched a new online training program, Wright Tool University, for employees, distributors, sales representatives and tool users.

Set up like any university, at Wright Tool University students must register, enroll in classes, and obtain a certain score to pass the classes. Users can search for a class they would like to take or are required to take in the course catalog.

“Wright Tool University was built to put a consistent message about our company and our tools in the minds of our tool users, our distributors, our representatives, and our employees,” said Ty Smith, director of business development at Wright Tool, in the training announcement. “Knowledge is power, and this is one of the ways we are perfecting our performance and our customers’ performance.”

The University can be accessed through a link on Wright Tool’s Web site (www.wrighttool.com). After registering, attendees of Wright Tool University are offered different courses they designed specifically for their needs. Courses include:
    Corporate
    Impact Sockets
    Ratchets, Hand Sockets and Attachments
    Wrenches
New courses and information will be added to the university annually.

The material covers how the tool is used, how to tell when a tool is worn and should no longer be used, safety information for the specific tool, the manufacturing process, and background information on Wright Tool Co. At the end of each module, the student must pass a quiz to successfully complete the course.
