ACC partnering with Manufacturer’s Edge to offer the Lean Academy


Arapahoe Community College Workforce & Community Programs is partnering with Manufacturer’s Edge to offer the Lean Academy at the ACC Littleton Campus on Thursday evenings (5:30 – 7:30 p.m.) this fall.

The Lean Academy, which runs from Sept. 28 – Dec. 14, will provide a digital badging opportunity for the manufacturing sector.  Foundational principles and tools of the Lean Manufacturing Yellow Belt Certification include: Lean Basics, 5S and Workplace, Standardized Work Basics, Process Mapping, Kaizen Basic, PDCA Problem Solving, Lean Communications and Lean Shop Math.  Digital badging, a new paradigm for industry-recognized credentials, is an electronic representation – and recognition – of an individual’s skills and expertise.  Badging increases employers’ efficiency in identifying qualified job candidates and is useful for hiring, training and managing talent pools.  For more information, or to register, please visit http://www.arapahoe.edu/lean or call 303.797.5722.
