MASTER THE SKILLS
LEVEL 3: MASTER
Red X Journeymen, Red X Reliability Engineers, and TransaXional Journeyman are fully trained in their technical disciplines. They have demonstrated their skills through direct application and received an endorsement from a Shainin coach. Masters have demonstrated the ability to coach and develop others. They help make Shainin problem solving programs more self-sufficient.
To become a Master, a candidate must solve three challenging problems beyond the Journeyman or Reliability Engineer certification. Candidates should be endorsed by their management as having the interpersonal skills to coach others.
The Master class focuses on coaching skills. Students learn to recognize gaps in their candidates’ understanding and performance, and to communicate effectively to close those gaps.
Following the class, a master candidate will coach under the guidance of a Shainin coach to develop two Apprentice and two Journeymen level candidates (4 projects total). The candidate must then receive an endorsement from a Shainin coach.
EXPECTATIONS
  • Participants receive class & supplemental materials prior to class
  • Master Candidate excels in application of Shainin tools
  • Master Candidate has a desire to coach and develop additional problem solvers
  • Only certified Journeyman and Reliability Engineers are eligible for Master-level courses
  • Each Master Candidate is responsible for completing 3 additional problem-solving projects, developing two Apprentice and two Journeymen level candidates (4 projects total) and passing a Master Interview with a Shainin coach
