Continuing Education and Professional Development with UT CIS

By Bill Hicks, Region 7 Solutions Consultant

It’s hard to know where our professional careers may take us.  On several occasions during my thirty-plus year career, I’ve found myself responsible for something that I only vaguely remembered a college lecture on.  Some examples were:

  • Adding safety to my responsibilities as a project engineer
  • Supervising a small team because I was a good individual contributor
  • Implementing 5S when I wasn’t sure what it really was

If you have found yourself in this situation, or if you do in the future, please remember that UT CIS is here to help you with your continuing education and professional development.  We have partnered with our colleagues at UT Knoxville’s Reliability & Maintainability Center (RMC) to offer the following courses this Summer and Fall:

8/16 - 8/19    OSHA 511 Occupational Safety & Health Standards for General Industry
8/29 - 8/31    Vital Leadership 1
9/12 - 9/16    Lean Certificate Series
10/3 - 10/5    Vital Leadership 2

We are currently scheduling additional Fall classes in the various Management Systems Standards including Quality, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety.
Don’t see what you need on this list?  Feel free to give me or your local Solutions Consultant a call to discuss.  We can also deliver all of our classes at your site for a very reasonable price.
