Wright Tool recently launched a new online training program, Wright Tool University, for employees, distributors, sales representatives and tool users.
Wright Tool University is set up like any university. The student must register to attend the university, enroll in classes and obtain a certain score to pass the classes. Users can search for classes 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. “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) where students must register for the program. 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; and Wrenches. New courses and information will be added to the university annually.
Each is walked through an educational course on the selected subject. 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 Company. At the end of each module, the student must pass a quiz to successfully complete the course.Wright Tool manufactures a complete line of more than 4,000 professional-grade hand tools for the industrial, contractor, and MRO markets. All Wright-manufactured products carry lifetime guarantees against defects in workmanship.
