Class members in Western Europe and U.S. earn first global MES/MOM Certificates

CHANDLER, Arizona, March 24, 2011 - MESA International today announced the successful completion of the first
events in the newly launched MESA Global Education Program. Mike James,
Chairman of the MESA Education Committee, said, "After more than a year of
review and planning, this important industry initiative is definitely
'launched.' The first classes have gone through, and the first Certificate of
Awareness has been awarded. We're off to a perfect start!"


Attendees of the first, U.K. event took the 2-day, high-level program of
MES/MOM Business Functions courses geared for executives,
manufacturing/operations, IT personnel and sales professionals. All are
eligible to earn the MESA Certificate of Awareness, given they pass both the
in-class and post-class exams. Jonathon Hill, MES Capabilities Leader with a
major Aerospace OEM, is the first to do so, earning Certificate No. 1 in the
MESA Global Education Program.

Mr. Hill commented, "This is the most comprehensive set of courses I have
ever followed, providing a full and broad understanding of Manufacturing
Execution Systems / Manufacturing Operations Management. I will be
recommending to our executives that they follow this program and rely on MESA
International as an important source of expertise in this context."
