MESA Global Education Program awards first certificates
MESA International has successfully completed the first events in the newly launched MESA Global Education Program
MESA International has announced the successful completion of the first events in the newly launched MESA Global Education Program. Mike James, Chairman of the MESA Education Committee, said, “After more than a year of review and planning, this important industry initiative is definitely ‘launched.’ The first classes have gone through, and the first Certificate of Awareness has been awarded. We’re off to a perfect start!”
Attendees of the first, U.K. event took the 2-day, high-level program of MES/MOM Business Functions courses geared for executives, manufacturing/operations, IT personnel and sales professionals. All are eligible to earn the MESA Certificate of Awareness, given they pass both the in-class and post-class exams. Jonathon Hill, MES Capabilities Leader with a major Aerospace OEM, is the first to do so, earning Certificate No. 1 in the MESA Global Education Program.
Mr. Hill commented, “This is the most comprehensive set of courses I have ever followed, providing a full and broad understanding of Manufacturing Execution Systems / Manufacturing Operations Management. I will be recommending to our executives that they follow this program and rely on MESA International as an important source of expertise in this context.”
The upcoming events schedule for April and May is listed below. Course abstracts, a complete schedule of events and registration information are available online at www.mesa.org/educationprogram.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
