Skills Certificate, Advanced Manufacturing Workforce

The Skills Certificate, Advanced Manufacturing Workforce, is designed as an employment credential for people with no manufacturing experience. Students will train for a new career in just a few weeks through our self-paced training format. Students will learn terminology and processes used in manufacturing, precision measurement, safety, and quality systems.


Students completing the certificate will practice safety at all levels in modern manufacturing or distribution plants.

Student completing the certificate will apply knowledge and skills used to obtain advanced manufacturing/distribution employment.

Students completing the certificate will use quality control standards to troubleshoot inefficiencies in a production/distribution environment.
