ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
If you're looking for a new career starting out as a manager or supervisor, the program Albany Technical College announced Monday may be right for you.
The Operations Management Program curriculum is designed to prepare people for entry level supervisory roles. It takes new students early next year.
Here is more information from Albany Tech--
Albany Tech Launches New Operations Management Program Beginning spring semester 2013, Albany Technical College will add an Operations Management associate degree program to its list of areas of study. The Operations Management program will train students to enter the workforce as an entry-level supervisor within a manufacturing community.
The program will afford students the ability to organize, and lead an organization in its daily performance of the tasks of creating and producing a product that meets the needs of a customer, while producing revenue that will generate a profit.
While complimenting all existing manufacturing related Albany Tech programs, courses will be designed to acquaint students with the different types of operations necessary for the successful flow of product within an organization. Topics of discussion include human resource strategies, supply chain operation, inventory and planning management, and material and scheduling operations.
Students earning the associate degree in Operations Management will complete the educational requirements for Certified Associate Project Manager (CAPM®) and have the opportunity to complete other requirements for certification testing. Albany Technical College will also offer PMP® certification and CAPM® certification in a non-credit offering for individuals and companies needing this specialized training.
The new program will be chaired by Dr. Steve Eidson, who already heads up the Lean Six Sigma program at Albany Tech. Eidson, a Certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt instructor, recently passed the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam through the Project Management Institute (PMI).
The PMP designation is the most important industry recognized certification for Project Managers. Eidson's efforts with Lean Six Sigma has allowed Albany Tech to serve over 30 companies throughout the state of Georgia with obtaining Green and Black Belt certifications.
Eidson was also named Albany Tech's 2010 Rick Perkins Instructor of the Year. Registration for this program is already underway for spring semester classes, which begin on January 7, 2013. For more information, visit www.albanytech.edu.
