Lean Master Certification







The MRC Lean Master Certification curriculum was created to assist companies with the challenge of implementing and maintaining improvements in Lean Manufacturing  processes.  This proven methodology includes a series of training modules designed to provide targeted technical competencies in Lean Manufacturing tools and techniques.

Course locations vary.  Problem Solving, Lean Daily Management Systems, TPM and Set-up Reduction will be hosted onsite at a local manufacturer to be announced soon.  All other courses will be conducted in combination with e-Learning and at the MRC corporate office where our new Lean Enterprise Works (LEW) factory resides.  LEW is a real-world mock up of a controlled manufacturing facility for hands-on application of the principles you will learn in an actual shop floor setting.

Even in a job shop, LEAN manufacturing will simplify your processes. The overall goal is to minimize the eight wastes described by the acronym DOWNTIME.

  • Instructors include nationally recognized LEAN experts
  • Content prepares you for the SME Bronze Exam
  • Ability to network with other Lean practitioners
  • Gain first hand exposure to companies that are well into their Lean transformation
  • Train and Do format – hands-on experience and learning
  • Consistent LEAN mentoring throughout the program
  • Hands-on workshops
