When people look to move into a new #career, one thing most people don't think about is an Apprenticeship. The Department of Labor has a great website called ApprenticeshipUSA where you can look for available programs. There are also many programs for Veterans!

Policy change! To ensure our certifications remain high valued, recertification requirements will be in effect. http://bit.ly/2jzNF72

Important Policy Change:

The Management and Strategy Institute's goal (and mission statement) is to provide affordable, yet respected certifications. To help ensure our certifications continue to remain highly valued within the business community and the greater certification community, MSI is instituting Recertification Criteria for all of our certifications. This change will be effective April 1st 2017.

There are a few important facts we would like to mention regarding this policy change:

- Recertification will be FREE. In keeping with our company mission statement and core values, MSI will not charge for recertification.

- All certifications gained prior to April 1st 2017 will be grandfathered, and will remain lifetime certifications. You will have the option to apply for recertification if desired, but it will be optional.

- Starting April 1st 2017, all certifications will be issued with a 3-year certification period.

We will be providing more information on the recertification process in the coming weeks. Our goal is to make the process simple, easy to understand, and free.

When it comes to Process Improvement, the Government (both State and Federal) is a great place to apply your skills. Six Sigma and Lean are fairly new concepts in Government as is the concept of "Quality Operations", so there aren't as many jobs as you'd find in the private sector. There are jobs to be found though. Take a look at these offerings from USA Jobs:

This means that equipment is expected to have zero breakdowns, slow runs, or defects. TPM also values a safe working environment with a zero accident policy.

MSI offers a TPM Concepts certification for just $49.95. Take some time this weekend and learn about this important maintenance process!

Experience with #Social #Media is important, even in jobs that may not seem like it! Take a look at some of the 65 Thousand jobs that list "Social Media" in the job description. While some of the jobs are obvious, like "Social Media Manager", many others are not. There are jobs in Healthcare, business, manufacturing, etc. Many of these roles may require some type of social media outreach or use during the regular duties of the position.

That's why having a Social Media certification is a great "bonus" for any career field:

I have taken both the Green Belt and Black Belt Certification exams from the Management and Strategy Institute and found their study materials very helpful in not only learning the material, but gaining insight that can be applied immediately to my customer base.
Response from the owner - a week ago

I liked taking the course. It was easy to learn the material needed for the course. I would have liked to see more interactive portions to the modules or after them as interactive exercises to apply the module information.
Response from the owner - 3 months ago
Hi James, thank you for the review! We're glad you enjoyed the learning material and I've passed on the information about having more interactive portions. Congratulations on your certification!

The course content is good. Structured, explained well, some pages are repetitive, but worth a refresher. The exam pattern was laid out well too.
