Schedule Auditor Training for Employees

Would you like to increase your company's revenue stream?  Of course, you would.  Did you know ESD-related instances are likely costing your business dollars as you read this post?  Electrostatic charges cause disruptions to products and processes.  Unfortunately, this costs you money; yet, the costs are somewhat hidden.  Most executives factor costs related to damaged and returned equipment as well as maintenance needs.  Sending employees to auditor training helps your business curb costs as well as enables you to leverage the employee as a service to others in need.

We at Halperin Associates offer years of experience and passion to train your employees.  We supply the public with a number of training certification and consulting services.  The auditor training course teaches employees the basics of ESD and how to make control measurements. 

Upon completion, workers may address:
-          Work surfaces
-          Floors
-          Chairs
-          Mobile equipment
-          Garments
-          Gloves
-          Hand Tools
..and more.

Ours is a three-day auditor training course, focusing upon:
-          Class room instruction involving ESD basics, device failure and mechanisms, equipment selection, and measurement practices
-          Measurement workshops involving individual instruction on resistance and voltage measurement, hands-on practice using ESD equipment
-          Optional certification program
Your employees will receive quality training and return to your business prepared to test for ESD interference, leveraging state-of-the-art ESD equipment.  They'll know how to use proper materials, ensuring your company saves money on damaged products and processes.  In addition, you'll add another service to your business.  After auditor training, your employee will be able to counsel other businesses about ESD control and measurement.

ESD Training Makes Sense

When confronted with the suggestion of ESD training, many potential clients ask the obvious question, "Why does my company need it?"  It makes sense (and cents) is the most succinct reply we can give but we understand that's not what the client wants.  They need illustration, a conjured image, allowing them to understand the importance of ESD training for them and their workers.  We would like to briefly describe the importance of training.

To start, let's convince you why ESD warrants your attention.  Did you know that ignoring ESD control is costing your company money?  Consultants have discovered ESD can cost the average electronic manufacturer somewhere between 4 and 8 percent of annual revenue.  It's worse for the telecommunications industry, costing some companies an excess of 10 percent of annual revenue.  What's even worse is that your losses are somewhat hidden, being included in operational costs!  Some of you are losing money and budgeting for such losses!  However, leaving room for ESD training in your budget saves money, making a significant, positive impact on revenue.

We can help you achieve ESD control, minimizing damage while maximizing quality, productivity, and profitability.  Following our guidance, your profits will far exceed the cost for ESD training.

Your process starts with three steps:
-          Understanding the entire manufacturing process in great detail
-          Hiring professional and experienced professionals to implement ESD training
-          Selecting and implementing ESD controls, meeting the specific needs of your processes and devices.
We invite you to do more research on your own regarding the topic.  Talk to other executives in your industry and beyond.  ESD control is a necessity and the loss of company revenue is a reality.  Halperin Associates holds years of experience within the ESD industry.  We're passionate about our clients and what we can do for them.  Please refer to our testimonials.

If you're reading this but not the decision maker in your company, bring the potential problems of ESD control to your superiors.  Encourage them to learn more about the topic.  We welcome their calls and questions!  We look forward to incorporating ESD training into your business and saving your business money!
