About the Program

This program (MLCP) has been developed through a training partnership of five Ontario Community Colleges and the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME). Global competition, the development of advanced technologies and other economic challenges are rapidly changing the way Canadian business and industry operates. Supervisors have felt the impact of these changes most dramatically. Today's manufacturing supervisors must demonstrate multifaceted leadership combined with a high level of technical expertise. The Manufacturing Leadership Certificate Program is exactly what you need if you are a supervisor, manager or have goals targeted in that direction.

Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR)

Conestoga recognizes prior learning of skills, knowledge or competencies that have been acquired through employment, formal and informal education, non-formal learning or other life experiences. Prior learning must be measurable at the required academic level and meet Conestoga standards of achievement for current courses. Challenge exams and portfolio development are the primary methods of assessment. Other methods of assessment may be available depending upon the nature of the course objectives. Successful completion of the assessment results in an official course credit that will be recorded on the student's Conestoga transcript. PLAR cannot be used by registered Conestoga students for the clearance of academic deficiencies, to improve grades or to obtain admission into a program.
