Industrial Technology

Industrial and manufacturing settings are rapidly changing as a result of technological innovation.

A technically skilled workforce is in high demand. CBIZ can provide you with the in-depth instruction, customized curriculum and hands-on experience to help develop and expand employee skills.

Becoming a Certified Professional Lean Practitioner demonstrates your commitment to lean principles, tools, and tactical implementation to drive improvement. CBIZ’s extensive coursework gives participants the skills and confidence to raise questions, identify problems, and develop leadership in the transformation process. Take one course, or begin your journey to certification.

We live in a fast-paced global economy. Lean certification starts with the fundamentals and keeps you on track with the newest practices. Our three-tiered certification provides professional development for people in all levels of an organization: Certification in LEAN Operations (CLO), Certification in LEAN Applications (CLA) and Certification in LEAN Leadership (CPLL).

The Certification program is “hands-on” and application-based. Each certification level includes implementation activities, allowing participants to better absorb what they learn. Learn more about the Certified Professional Lean Practitioner by visiting the Professional Lean Practitioner section of our Training & Development page.

The nationally recognized Certified Production Technician (CPT) is available at CBIZ!

Earn the CPT certificate from the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) by completing your certification in four modules:

•    Safety Awareness
•    Quality Practices & Measurement
•    Manufacturing Processes & Production
•    Maintenance Awareness

Basic computer literacy required. Individuals may register to take the CPT or NCRC exams independently of the coursework.  To receive more information or to receive CPT course announcements, email cbiz@scciowa.edu. Include CPT in the subject line.

 APICS, the Association for Operations Management is the leader in certification and education programs for supply operations and supply chain management professionals. Expand your Career Opportunities and improve your company’s profitability.  CBIZ is proud to partner with APICS to build your leadership, recognition and knowledge as you complete the Certified in Production and Inventory Management Program (CPIM)

To learn more about the CPIM, email cbiz@scciowa.edu and place CPIM in the subject line.

LEAN 101 - Principles of LEAN Manufacturing 
Combined classroom and hands-on simulation of an operating factory in a 1-day, 8-hour course. The first step to learning the principles of lean manufacturing, no previous experience is required. The course is a mix of classroom and live simulation.  Participants begin by manufacturing simulated circuit boards in a traditional forecasted manufacturing setting. The results of the simulation provide the basis for continuous improvement applying lean manufacturing principles. Performance improvements are measured and compared for improved results.
