– Client, Manufacturing Industry

eMRI provides open enrollment training in the classroom with our university partners throughout the United States.

This training is offered on a calendar-based set class schedule in which anyone can register. A typical class consists of approximately 15 people from about 8-10 different industries. We have found that those who enroll:


  • do so on their own desire to learn a new skill for advancement;
  • are sent by their managers to learn new skills or to enhance existing skills;
  • are sent for new-hire training;
  • are sent to learn whether a specific continuous improvement methodology is right for their organization.

Our current academic partnership in which we offer open enrollment training includes:
