Certified Production Technician (PRO867)
The Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) is an industry-led training, assessment and certification organization focused on the core technical competencies needed by the nation’s front-line production and material handling workers. The nationwide MSSC certifications, based upon industry defined and federally endorsed national standards, offer both entry-level and incumbent workers the opportunity to demonstrate that they have acquired the knowledge and skills increasingly needed in the technology-intensive jobs of the 21st century. MSSC has developed the following nationally portable certification for the workforce:
Certified Production Technician (CPTAE): The CPTAE Certification addresses the core technical competencies of higher skilled production workers in all sectors of manufacturing. MSSC awards certificates to individuals who pass any module: Safety; Quality Practices & Measurement; Manufacturing Processes & Production; Maintenance Awareness; and a full CPTAE Certification to those who pass all four original modules MSSC accredited by ANSI under ISO 17024 (Personal Certification).
This industry-recognized, nationally portable credential includes four modules (detailed below) and is completed over 140 hours of integrated instruction. The MSSC Certified Production Technician is awarded to individuals who pass all four production assessments in the modular areas: • Safety; • MSSC Quality Practices and measurement; • Manufacturing Process & Production; • Maintenance Awareness
