Advanced Manufacturing & Technical Education

A recent survey of employers showed that high paying, skilled trade jobs have become increasingly hard to fill. The shortage of qualified workers in this area has been largely attributed to lack of technical training in a rapidly changing field and the retirement of baby boomers. Transportation jobs also show increased growth.

Certified Production Technician (CPT)

e Manufacturing Skills Standard Classification (MSSC) was established in 2003 to provide a national certification for the production technician. The objective has been to deliver modern skills for the “industrial athlete.” The MSSC CPT program is geared to both entry- level and experienced workers who desire good frontline positions in manufacturing. The course has been described as manufacturing “boot camp.” Most students pass at least 3 of the 4 modules on initial attempts. Those top performers passing all assessments earn the coveted CPT emblem which can be placed on digital resumes and uniforms. The CPT distinction is a nationally-recognized credential.
