SCADA software training is undergoing a remodeling of technical training courseware to incorporate new cognitive learning approaches. In order to better facilitate the learning requirements of our customers’ knowledge domains, Valmet technical trainers are looking at ways to infuse concepts from cognitive science, constructivism and the models of andragogy into their training materials. This paper synthesizes the research undertaken by Valmet trainers towards building a training model for the delivery of future courseware. A pilot Train the Trainer course, aimed at helping intermediate to advanced learners acquire knowledge and hone problem-solving skills, has been created as a result of our research.
