|Overview of SME Lean Certification Process - September 13, 2013|
Presenter: Paul Demers (retired from VMEC in February 2012 but will be presenting this session)
SME Lean Certification is an internationally recognized certification process developed by SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers) and AME (Association for Manufacturing Excellence) along with the Shingo Prize committee. VMEC has been trained and authorized to provide review courses and administer the required SME Certification exam.
Certification is a credential designed by industry for industry. It is a standard against which professional Lean manufacturing competencies are measured. Its core driver is the desire to assess a Lean practitioner's knowledge, skills and abilities.
This certification is targeted to companies on Lean journeys and to Lean champions and practitioners charged with facilitating those Lean transformations. VMEC supports and encourages SME Lean Certification.
Overview of SME Lean Certification is a special 2 hour session designed to provide you with the essential information you need to know to determine if Lean Certification is right for you or someone else in your company.
Please check the future workshop schedule, as we will be holding the Lean Bronze Certification Review Course and a Lean Bronze Certification Exam in the greater Burlington area in the fall of 2013.
Degrees and/or formal education are not a pre-requisite for certification.
