Our certificate courses are facilitated by CME experts with real-world experience in the manufacturing industry. Our courses feature hands-on activities and include structured learning objectives to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to spark continuous improvement within your workplace. Training varies from one-day sessions to multi-week modules and provides you with tips and best practices on a variety of operational topics.
Embracing a Lean philosophy is one of the most powerful things your business can do. Labour shortages and productivity issues continue to be at the forefront of manufacturer concerns. CME’s extensive suite of Lean programs and services are the answer. With more than 2,000 participants engaged in Lean training last year alone, CME supports hundreds of companies in their productivity and engagement journeys, from coast-to-coast.
HEALTH & SAFETY
CME provides training designed for the unique needs of the Manitoba manufacturing workplace. From aerial lift to province-specific workplace health and safety legislation, and everything in between, we’ve got you covered.
Industry 4.0 is transforming the world of manufacturing. The convergence of digital, biological and physical innovations are lowering operating costs, increasing flexibility and responsiveness, reducing waste and improving product quality. These technologies are opening new doors for innovative, risk-taking companies and threatening to leave slow adopters behind. CME training will keep you ahead of the curve.
WORKSHOPS AND MORE CERTIFICATE COURSES
Our workshops deliver valuable training tailored to your specific needs and are offered in a convenient one-day training format. Specifically created for the needs of manufacturers, industry experts show how you can implement Lean concepts to create positive changes in your organization, from reducing environmental impacts to learning essential leadership or coaching skills.
SHOP TALKS & PEER COUNCILS
Join a community of dedicated manufacturing professionals. CME’s virtual Shop Talks series connects frontline leaders and supervisors, providing a forum to exchange information, ideas and insights. Topical learning and facilitated discussions ensure a high level of peer-driven commitment and accountability, which in turn offers invaluable key takeaways and innovative solutions. Register for one session or all six.
TRAINING WHEN YOU WANT IT, HOWEVER YOU WANT IT
The world is changing. From pandemic social distancing requirements to geographic distance to employee and manager preference – a one-size fits all approach to training no longer meets the needs of today’s modern manufacturing plant. That’s why our training programs are offered in three formats, each tailored to meet your needs. At CME, we deliver programs and services by manufacturers, for manufacturers. With CME’s in-depth, industry-driven experience and staff, we understand the realities of today’s manufacturing work environment better than anyone else.
Choose from three training formats to suit your needs:
Our online programs strike a balance between facilitated, live, peer-engaged learning and learn-at-your-own-pace theory instruction outside of classroom hours with our powerful online learning management platform. We combine the best of both worlds, limiting time off site and maximizing flexibility while minimizing schedule disruptions.
Leverage our private remote facilitation for your company and train staff from any of your locations in real-time. CME’s expert facilitators help build teams and break down barriers.
Learning in real-time with expert facilitation and peers from manufacturing organizations across the country enhances retention, allows employees to develop powerful networks and maximizes best practice sharing to drive competitive advantage.
