Set the foundation for laundry management career growth with attendance at this institute. PMI begins with four days of interactive classroom training on fundamental laundry production and operations, emphasizing key principles such as productivity, safety, quality and sustainability. The program continues for 12 months as students participate in a series of self-paced, online modules on topics such as human resources, communications, finance, time/project management and business ethics.

New for 2017, PMI is co-located with the Executive Management Institute, providing additional opportunities to increase information sharing and networking.

Who Should Attend:

  • Senior Business and Operational Management
  • General Managers
  • Production/Plant Managers
  • Supervisors
  • Engineers
  • Industry Associates



The Roger F. Cocivera Production Management Institute (PMI) enhances and develops supervisory and management performance in textile services companies by:

  • Imparting thorough understanding of best practices in laundry operations
  • Enhancing supervisory and leadership skills

PMI prepares a promising person to increase her/his value to your company immediately through intensive formal education in plant operations—four consecutive days of classes—as well as informal exchange of ideas and experiences with other laundry operators from around the world.

PMI is about today. It’s how leaders in your business get a better perspective on what they do, day in and day out. They see where they fit into the industry. They learn about performance standards and techniques. They get the message they can grow personally and contribute more to what you do.
First-time PMI attendees receive instruction in topics identified collectively as PMI Production. During the next 12 months, in their everyday workplaces or homes, students participate in a series of self-paced, online modules on important management topics such as communications, finance and leadership. The program concludes with PMI Management, four days of interactive sessions that further refine participants’ production and laundry-specific management skills. Upon completion of the classroom and online training, students are tested and can earn the Certified Professional Laundry Manager designation, the baseline of knowledge for all graduates.
