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.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
