Production Management Institute (PMI)
Where technical personnel learn to improve personal performance and recognize how their individual successes contribute to enhanced total business performance.
Next Session: April 6-11, 2014
TRSA’s Roger F. Cocivera Production Management Institute (PMI) is a professional development program that combines traditional classroom instruction with web-based training to provide 150+ hours of continuous management and production study.
The program begins with PMI-Production, four days of interactive classroom training on fundamental laundry production and operations, such as soil sort, wash aisle and finishing. During the next 12 months, 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 (CPLM) certification, the baseline of knowledge for all graduates.Who Should Participate in PMI
The PMI professional development program encourages continuous learning and improvement for:
- Senior Business and Operational Management
- General Managers
- Production/Plant Managers
- Industry Associates
The learning continues outside these formal and semiformal settings as well. Many students have said that the greatest value they obtain from the program is peer networking, not only during the PMI sessions, but sometimes years later. PMI alumni regularly exchange information or help each other solve problems in their plants long after they graduate from the program. For all these reasons and more, PMI is an investment in both the short and long-term success of your management staff, and by extension, your business itself.
