Aug. 12, 2015—I-CAR’s new Production Management Curriculum, which was announced at the 2015 NACE Expo & Conference, was launched on Tuesday. Now available, the curriculum is a part of I-CAR’s Professional Development Program.
"This industry has a strong, immediate need for production management training," said Josh McFarlin, I-CAR’s director of curriculum and product development. "By working directly with shop owners and experts across the shop floor, we were able to build a unique curriculum that accurately reflects critical areas and challenges the industry faces."
The Production Management curriculum follows I-CAR’s new “Purpose Built” curriculum design principles. A core component of the curriculum is the Learning Culture Overview, which is the first course in the sequential series. The course is key to enhancing and maximizing a facility’s success rate in KPIs, I-CAR said in a release.
Courses that are currently available are part of the ProLevel 1 pathway for the role within I-CAR’s industry-recognized PDP. Each course in the Production Management role must be taken sequentially.
