NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

Fall 2013 (Banish Waste and Create Wealth in Your Organization)

As companies aim to become more competitive/world-class by applying Lean Principles, they are realizing that they need to develop internal lean champions who can support and lead various initiatives and continuous improvement teams. The Lean Manufacturing Certificate Program Level is intended to develop strong supporters of lean.

The Lean Manufacturing Certificate Program is a Six Day Program (6 modules) designed to meet the training needs of companies adopting the ‘lean approach’ to doing business. It provides theory and application of the key lean tools. It is also intended to allow them to better support the lean approach of their companies who are serious about improving profitability through reducing waste. Graduates receive a certificate, granted by Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters, Newfoundland & Labrador Division.

Upon successful completion of this interactive program, participants will be familiar with the principles and key tools supporting the company lean initiative. They should be strong contributors to the lean journey able to provide leadership on improvement teams and drive improvements in their areas of influence.
