By Kristin Forbis, Jan 12, 2021
Businesses in the Uintah Basin might be looking for opportunities to provide training to their employees and the Uintah Basin Technical College Custom Fit is designed to help do that. “Custom Fit provides customized training, along with funding for all types of training to for-profit companies of all sizes in Duchesne, Uintah, and Daggett counties.” For all businesses from mom and pop stores to start-ups to state and even national corporations the Custom Fit program is there to provide a wide variety of eligible training for employees. They could offer up to 40% of the training costs be paid for by custom fit. Recently their program presented the Pit Crew Challenge. The training was delivered by iMpact Utah in which participants are timed changing tires as if they were on an Indy car pit crew. They then take what they learn during instruction and apply it. The hands on experience helped to build teamwork and communication. It wasn't planned but was an astute testament of the training that the team that started with the slowest time by the fourth round ended up with the fastest time of 47 seconds.
