September 17, 2020   by Don Horne

Next Generation Manufacturing Canada (NGen) and Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) are partnering to provide online training opportunities for manufacturers at a discount.

“We are pleased to partner with CME to provide high-quality, accessible training opportunities to all levels of staff across manufacturing organizations,” says Jay Myers, CEO, NGen. “CME’s Recovery Online Workshops Series leverages insights from real-world experts and manufacturers that are increasingly relevant and applicable in today’s dynamic operating environment.”

Through NGen’s Accelerating Manufacturing Productivity Upskilling Program (AmpUp), manufacturers can access bulk pricing options for CME’s Recovery Online Workshops Series.

“As an essential service, manufacturers have been on the front lines, powering the economy through the pandemic,” says Dennis Darby, president & CEO of CME. “Our partnership with NGen is an important example of how organizations can work together to create the right landscape for Canadian manufacturers to improve competitiveness and drive Canada’s manufacturing industry from crisis response to economic prosperity with access to the tools and supports they need to do so.”


The collaboration with CME is the latest in a series of partnerships in which NGen has engaged to expand its training and certification offerings through AmpUp. CME’s Recovery Online Workshops Series provides participants with tangible takeaways and the critical supports that manufacturers need to weather the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.

The training is designed to help Canadian manufacturers improve their operations, their competitiveness, and their bottom line. With three options available, front-line workers, operational staff and leadership all have the opportunity to benefit.

Through AmpUp, NGen continues to develop discounted training and certification offerings from certified institutions across Canada.
