About this Program

This certificate will provide students with knowledge of manufacturing processes and plant operations, along with an advanced skill set in electronic and automation systems. Students will engage in coursework topics of technical mathematics, introductory computer skills, print interpretation, manufacturing processes, quality control, maintenance and safety. Also included in coursework is an advanced skill set of AC/DC power, digital electronics, analog circuits, and motor controls.

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 this Certificate will have gained the knowledge required to pass the MSSC full-certified Production Technician Certification.
