Over the years, the Tri-State Manufacturers’ Alliance has focused on topical quarterly events, coordinating best practice plant tours, and facilitating peer group discussions; all designed to provide outlets for best practice sharing and learning. TSMA is excited about expanding support for the manufacturing community in our Region with the launch of the Shared Learning Program!  This program is designed to allow TSMA members with outstanding internal training programs to share “open seats”, making their internal trainings available to employees from other TSMA companies.  Registration is quick and easy!

PURPOSE

  • Sharing training will give the region a competitive edge
  • Reduce training costs by working collectively with other manufacturers
  • Development of our workforce is of paramount importance to the continuing success of our organizations

PROCESS

  • Develop learning plans for individuals in your organization
  • Attend “TSMA Shared Learning Program” at TSMA host location to fill empty seats at a nominal rate (free during this opening program launch)
  • Attend “TSMA Shared Learning Program” via USI or Purdue MEP tracks to improve soft and hard skills in academic environment
    – Soft Skills track (i.e., Communications, coaching skills, management/leadership etc.)
    – Hard Skills track (i.e., Lean training and implementation, Six Sigma, Quality/ISO,
    Technology Introduction)
    – TSMA members may provide subject matter expert to bring real life experience to training sessions

HOW WILL WE DO THIS?

  • TSMA driven
  • Offerings will be posted on TSMA website.
  • Registration managed through TSMA website
