Course Description:

The Supervisor Certification curriculum targets firstline supervisors at manufacturing facilities with a comprehensive overview of supervisory principles. With a strong emphasis on continuous improvement, job instruction, employee relations, problem solving, and effective communication, the course teaches students the interpersonal strategies to become a productive and respected supervisor.

Course based on Training Within Industry (TWI). TWI is an improvement process that addresses the essential skills needed by supervisors (anyone leading others). TWI’s rich history originated in the United States in the 1940s where the program was a resounding success, boosting industrial production beyond expectations.

  • 86% of companies increased production by at least 25%
  • 100% reduced training time by more than 25%
  • 55% reduced scrap by at6 least 25%

During the prosperity of post-war America, the TWI program was abandoned and it soon became a faded memory. TWI is experiencing a rebirth throughout industry. Lean enterprises are increasingly turning to TWI as a means to sustain improvements and achieve standard work. TWI has been successfully applied in hundreds of companies worldwide.
