Manufacturing Supervisor Certification Program

Apr 15, 2020
Multiple Locations, TX, United States


Today’s manufacturing supervisors must have human relation, conceptual, and decision-making skills. Through lectures led by industry experts and hands-on exercises, the Manufacturing Supervisor Certification Program allows participants to obtain and practice these critical skills. 

The Supervisor Certification curriculum targets first-line 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. Based on Training Within Industry (TWI) Job Instruction and Job Relation programs, TWI is an improvement process that addresses the essential skills needed by supervisors (anyone leading others) and is a means to sustain improvements and achieve standard work. TWI has been successfully applied in hundreds of companies worldwide.

  • Earn both TWI: Job Instruction and TWI: Job Relation Certifications
  • Reduce turnover of employees
  • Improve employee morale
  • Successfully lead a team

This course is offered by the Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center (TMAC), a program of Southwest Research Institute.
