What is PBET?

PBET is performance-based equipment training. It is a way to prepare and deliver training that ensures that trainees can actually perform the equipment skills required by their job.

How can you tell if a course or training program is performance-based - that is, if it is an authentic PBET program or course?

Just as a carpenter holds up a plumb line to determine if a wall is straight, there are two "plumb lines" --that is, two sets of criteria-- that can be used to determine if training is performance-based. One plumb line concerns the steps of the performance improvement process; the other is a set of characteristics about the resulting training.

You can read an overview for each plumb line by downloading a paper as a pdf file.
