Press Release: MESA International's Global Education Program Now Offers Online Courses

New online option makes training and knowledge-sharing more accessible 
CHANDLER, AZ, July 16, 2013 - MESA International has been working for the last several years to establish a global baseline of knowledge that will benefit both manufacturers and solution providers. This effort continues to grow and progress, with MESA now offering a variety of instructor-led online courses. Upon successful completion, these courses provide CEUs and can also be applied towards a MES/MOM Methodologies Online Certificate of Awareness.  For full certificate requirements, visit http://www.mesa.org/en/globaleducationprogram/CoA-MES-MOM-Online.asp

"Neither the speed of business nor the acceleration of technology advancement is slowing down," said Mike Yost, President, MESA.  "The MESA Global Education Program (GEP) helps companies establish a reliable approach to aligning technologies and solutions with business needs."

"There is significant financial and operational benefit for companies that figure out how to leverage modern Information Technologies in their production operations. Taking MESA GEP training online will expand the accessibility of this valuable knowledge to many more companies looking for a competitive advantage."

Why choose an online course?
Offering Global Education Program courses online makes the training and knowledge-sharing more accessible to more people in more areas. Online training benefits include:
  • Minimum time away from the workplace
  • No travel and related expenses
  • Instructor-led courses ensure access to industry-leading experts
MESA knows the value of leveraging modern Information Technologies in production operations.  The online GEP courses will make sure more people know what MESA knows.

What courses are available?
Individual courses in MESA's MES/MOM Methodologies curriculum can now be taken online - or the entire 9-course curriculum can be bundled - allowing people to earn the MESA Certificate of Awareness (CoA) completely online.

GEP courses are available for members and non-members. For premium members, MESA credits 100% of membership fees towards the cost of any GEP course. This can yield upwards of $10,000 in savings for large, premium manufacturing members.
