Our Process

ISA's solutions development process consists of three vital components:

  • Assess
  • Train
  • Test

Each component of the ISA process feeds into the next, and revolves to form a continuous loop to help us improve our performance. This full-circle approach enables ISA to satisfy its customers' short- and long-term training goals while pinpointing opportunities to enahnce customer value and results.

Needs Assessment

ISA's expert training program begins with a Training Needs Assessment and Analysis, the essential first step in learning about a company's specific training issues, challenges and goals. The process includes interviews with and testing of employees, administered by one of our prominent subject matter experts. After ISA gains a deeper understanding of a company's goals and employees' current skills levels, we identify the gaps that exist between the two, and partner with company leaders to develop a master plan to help close the gaps. Using the roadmap as a guide, ISA works with our subject matter experts, our partners, and our resources to create a custom program to meet the company's identified needs and requirements.


Once skills/knowledge levels are assessed, ISA can recommend targeted, individualized learning plans; and work with customers to schedule training for employees with as little interruption to operations as possible. Where needed, ISA instructors can work with your leadership to develop custom courses to meet your team's exact goals and circumstances. And, limiting the size of ISA classes to smaller groups enables a better student/instructor ratio, with more one-on-one interaction, and a more-focused learning environment.


Before and after employees attend ISA's Onsite Training courses, ISA tests their knowledge levels. We use the pre-test to determine their baseline understanding and competency, and highlight areas needing the most improvement. Post-training evaluations, completed by employees and made available after every ISA training course, assess the students' understanding and knowledge. Testing also encourages valuable feedback that can benefit continuous program improvement. In addition to testing on knowledge and skills learned during the individualized learning plans, ISA can also bring certification exams to your location.
