Our Programs

Courses for Technical Professionals

Professionals like yourself need the latest knowledge, practical examples, and tools in order to advance your organization. We understand that you don’t have weeks or months at a time to dedicate to each subject matter, but need to advance your knowledge.

We work with businesses, organizations, and consultants seeking to re-skill and up-skill their employees and leaders to transition or scale their current operations, growth, and drive continuous improvement. Depending on the size and interests of organizations, the programs are suitable for professionals and managers/leaders from supervisors up to C-level.  

To emphasize a real-time, relevant, industry-first approach, participants will learn directly from expert instructors, leaders in industry, and from businesses and organizations currently enacting best practices, and the use the most relevant tools.


You will gain foundational knowledge and apply it through case studies and practice immersive exercises alongside panelist discussions from numerous leaders in the private and public sectors.

We currently offer programs focused on sustainability, advanced manufacturing, and industry operations leadership and management.
