Dearborn, MI. — Dec. 31, 2001 — The Society of Manufacturing Engineers has introduced new training and education courses and products that available through its recently launched Learning Center at SME Headquarters at One SME Drive in Dearborn.

SME’s Learning Center is an on-line repository of more than 1,100 courses on lean manufacturing, Six Sigma, best business practices, professional development, OSHA standards, and dozens of other topics ranging from very technical to broader business applications.

The courses provide interactive e-learning opportunities that allow participants to advance their knowledge and skills for less cost and greater convenience than conventional training alternatives.

“As companies cut back on their training and travel budgets, they are experiencing an increased need for employee training,” said Richard Siyufy, SME’s manager of e-learning products. “Our Learning Center … is more cost-effective and convenient than seminars, conferences or university-based programs.”
