Would you like to strengthen your firm’s competitive advantage, be an employer of choice for top talent, provide an important professional development opportunity for your workforce leading to higher engagement and retention, accelerate growth, and improve profits? As an employee, would you like to gain new skills valuable to your employer, as well as earn a nationally recognized credential?

If so, please join us for the newly updated 8-Week SME Lean Bronze Certification Program - the only Nationally Recognized Lean Certification Credential and the only avenue to qualify for a full membership to the Manufacturing Excellence Team of the Western Montana Manufacturing Partnership (WMMP).

Do you have 50 employees or less? If so, you may be eligible for Incumbent Worker Training (IWT) reimbursement.

Program has been updated and will be completed in 8 sessions vs 10 (see agenda tab for more info)
Optional SME Lean Bronze Exam (additional fee)
New Full Certification option, which includes 12 months of individual support for portfolio projects leading to full Lean Bronze certification by SME. (Learn more about SME Certification here.)

You win more!
