Montgomery County Community College’s Workforce Development Division will offer a one-day training on the Principles of Lean Manufacturing in January. The training is the first public collaboration in conjunction with Delaware Valley Industrial Resource Center (DVIRC), a MCCC Workforce Development partner.
