Next Generation Manufacturing Canada (NGen), an industry-led organization that manages Canada’s Advanced Manufacturing Supercluster, has partnered with Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) to provide online training and certification oportunities from certified institutions across Canada for Canadian manufacturers at a significant discount.

NGen’s Accelerating Manufacturing Productivity Upskilling Program (AmpUp), offers manufacturers access to bulk pricing options for CME’s Recovery Online Workshops Series.

The Recovery Online Workshops Series provides training to help manufacturers improve operations, competitiveness, and their bottom line with programs for front-line workers, operational staff and leadership.

“CME’s Recovery Online Workshops Series leverages insights from real-world experts and manufacturers that are increasingly relevant and applicable in today’s dynamic operating environment,” says Jay Myers, CEO of NGen and former chief economist for CME.

“As an essential service, manufacturers have been on the front lines, powering the economy through the pandemic,” says Dennis Darby, President & CEO of CME. “Our partnership with NGen is an important example of how organizations can work together to create the right landscape for Canadian manufacturers to improve competitiveness and drive Canada’s manufacturing industry from crisis response to economic prosperity with access to the tools and supports they need to do so.
