5S is method of creating, maintaining and improving a clean and orderly workplace that exposes waste and errors. It helps identify unplanned levels of inventory, inadequate work processes, wasted time and equipment-related inefficiencies.
The PD Training 5S course is a great place to start on your continuous improvement initiative, because it promotes an action oriented approach to change and allows everyone in the organisation to get involved and provide input with improving their workplace.
This dynamic and practical training course is now available throughout New Zealand, including Auckland, Christchurch or Wellington and also via instructor-led online training.

After completing this course participants will be able to:
"I came in to the coarse not knowing much about it, until the trainer provided me with plenty of knowledge and ways to be able to organise my work load to be more easy and efficient."

"A huge benefit of the course was being able to hold it on site to where it was relevant to our own personal work environment and needs. It gave our team a better insight on how to improve and put into practice the 5S principles at the place they work everyday rather than attending a course in a meaningless environment to them.

"I found the course really interesting, learning how to look at different processes with a different set of eyes will improve our workflow immensely."
"Dawnielle was excellent. She mixed slideshows up with exercises and breaks and practical use of the knowledge she taught."

5S is much more than just "housekeeping". Housekeeping and an organised workplace are the results of 5S, but the real purpose of 5S is to uncover errors and problems more quickly.
Learn to reduce waste through a systematic application of 5S principles – Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain. This workshop teaches the basic 5S techniques and illustrates that its implementation immediately reduces waste and provides a cleaner, safer work environment.

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.
We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.
Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.
We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.
You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.
A hybrid class is with some people connecting online, and some people physically together in the same room.
We provide the Training Management Centre which is an information hub before, during and after training.
