Carpenter in Training

Yesterday I repaired my broken bed frame and I must say, I did a pretty good job.

With a little verbal guidance from my father, I drilled pilot holes and created  countersinks to firmly secure the support for the mattress cross-beams. However, if left to my own carpentry instincts, my repair would not have been quite the success. It seemed simple enough. The screw that held the support to the frame had snapped in two so all that was needed in my opinion were a few nails and a hammer. Feeling confident with my decision, I grabbed a measuring tape to determine what length nail would be appropriate and headed out to the garage for materials. With hammer and several nails in hand, I set out to the repair but before I could drive the first nail into the wood frame, I was abruptly stopped by my father. Apparently nails were not the way to go. I needed sturdy wood screws and power tools. So with a quick tutorial on the proper use of a drill and a bore bit, I began my repair.Though a bit more involved than I originally anticipated, the fix was easy and thanks to my Dad’s input, done well.

Like I was able to carry-out an unfamiliar task with  help from my Dad, corporate and medical facilities train employees faster and more effectively with the help of DDA CMT (Corporate and Medical Training). We build sophisticated, technology-based training programs for a variety of industries. Whether you are looking to instruct employees on healthcare IT practices or train machinists on proper equipment operations, DDA CMT can do so in an approach that is engaging and effective.

Currently I am coordinating a medical training CD-ROM project that conveys the operation of a blood banking device through narration and pseudo animation. The user can test their knowledge with a quiz and recap important material through an extensive resource library. On the back end, administrators can check user enrollment and scores to monitor comprehension. Once launched, the CD-ROM should hold great value for not only the employees being trained but the device manufacturers and most importantly, the patients they serve.
