According to The Improve Group , those already experienced in Lean Manufacturing, Six Sigma or Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) often have the equivalent experience and knowledge already to qualify for a Competitive Manufacturing qualification.
With Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), it is possible for experienced candidates to use their experience to gain a qualification in Competitive Manufacturing. These past experiences and skills can be used to help fast track a Competitive Manufacturing qualification.
RPL addresses the imbalance between people who have a 'formal qualification' and those who have experience: both are equally good at what they do. RPL enables people who have these skills, to get the qualification.
