Training Opportunities for your Business:


Lean Manufacturing Training:

The Devens Eco-Efficiency Center is partnering with MassMEP (Manufacturing Extension Partnership) to deliver a Regional Training Capacity Pilot Program. This initiative will provide hands-on full-day workshops to area small and medium size manufacturers FREE of charge. Trainings will focus on process improvement activities, including lean processes, quality assurance and ISO. The goal is to help facilities achieve the benefits of reduced waste and costs that result from systemic continuous improvement.

Safety Training Collaborative:

Fourteen area facilities are pursuing opportunities to partner to secure safety training for their employees in a more cost effective and efficient manner. Topics of focus currently include: fire extinguisher use, CPR/AED, NFPA 70E/ARC Flash/PPE, Employee Safety Training, and OSHA 10 Hour Training.
