"Because we now have the capability to offer some of the materials online, we’ve taken the most hands-on sessions and activities and have put them into the three day series; the remainder of the training is online and self-paced."
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 28, 2011
EMS Consulting Group, Inc. has just announced a Lean Manufacturing certification program to take place in San Diego, CA on December 6-8, 2011. This program includes 3 consecutive days of hands-on training including team activities, simulation, and videos. An optional plant tour of a lean facility is available on the morning of December 9th. The program also includes supplemental online training that covers additional topics that are part of the body of knowledge required for the certification. Participants will learn how to apply each of the principles and tools of lean including Value Stream Mapping, Continuous Flow Manufacturing Cells, Lean Production Control, Kanban and Pull systems, 5S, Total Productive Maintenance , Quick Changeover, and Kaizen Event facilitation. Lean Certification also requires participants to complete lean manufacturing projects at their own companies to reinforce the classroom learning.
"We have had a number of requests from our customer base to hold a lean certification program that requires fewer out-of-town trips," said Darren Dolcemascolo, Sr. Partner with EMS Consulting Group, Inc. "Because we now have the capability to offer some of the materials online, we’ve taken the most hands-on sessions and activities and have put them into the three day series; the remainder of the training is online and self-paced."
The program, which can also be taken as individual workshops without the certification, will take place at the Hilton San Diego Airport Harbor Island on December 6-8, 2011. The hotel is located on the scenic waterfront of Harbor Island, just minutes from downtown San Diego and San Diego International Airport. A limited number of rooms have been reserved at a discounted rate of $149 per night; these are available through November 6th only.
The Lean Certification program cost is $1595 for those who register by November 6th and $1695 after that date. To register or obtain additional information, visit http://www.emsstrategies.com/trainingservices.html and view the public workshop schedule.
