MANUFACTURING TRAINING FOR WORKING PROFESSIONALS
In Academy of Business Training manufacturing training classes, working professionals, from front-line workers to executive management, will learn to optimize their operations through efficient design, planning, execution, control, and monitoring of manufacturing activities with the objectives of creating net value, building a competitive infrastructure, leveraging logistics, synchronizing supply with demand, and measuring performance. Emphasis is placed on the emerging technologies disrupting the entire supply chain. The Academy of Business Training is the leading U. S. provider of short term (1 – 5 days) college-level manufacturing courses. We use the same textbooks, by well-known publishers like Cengage Learning and Pearson, as major colleges and universities. The most significant difference between us and a college or university is ABT instructors have a minimum of 30 years business experience and have held a senior management position for at least five years in the course they are teaching. Most business school instructors come from an educational background and have very little on the job experience (remember the movie Back to School with Rodney Dangerfield). When you take an ABT business training class, you are learning from a business professional trained in facilitative learning…not educators with no experience.
