Program Details

About this Program

This certificate will provide students with the training, education, and skills to build a base knowledge of manufacturing processes and plant operations, generally for entry-level positions. Graduates can use the knowledge gained in this Certificate to build upon a manufacturing career path leading to higher-level careers like Automation, Machining, and Welding. Students will engage in coursework topics of career success skills, technical mathematics, introductory computer skills, print interpretation, manufacturing processes, quality control, maintenance, and safety.

The nationwide Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) System, based upon industry-defined and federally-endorsed national standards, offers both entry-level and incumbent workers the opportunity to demonstrate that they have acquired the skills increasingly needed in the high-growth, technology-intensive jobs of the 21st century. The MSSC System awards certificates to individuals who pass any of its four Production modules: Safety; Quality Practices & Measurement; Manufacturing Processes & Production; and Maintenance Awareness and a full Certified Production Technician (CPT) Certification to those who pass all four. Students completing the Production Technologies Certificate will have gained the knowledge required to pass the MSSC full-certified Production Technician Certification.
