Manufacturing Production

Certificate - V62A

The Manufacturing Production Certificate is designed to build the core competencies of manufacturing production, technical math skills, and lean and quality management. This curriculum is incorporated into other manufacturing certificates, and also prepares students for internships and entry-level positions in manufacturing. This program will stress Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) criteria. The MSSC is an industry-led, training, assessment and certification system focused on the core skills and knowledge needed by the nation’s front-line production and material handling workers.

Students can finish a number of short-term training certificates as they progress through the program, and can join the program at multiple points, depending on assessment results and educational goals. This program was created as part of the Illinois Network for Advanced Manufacturing, which includes 21 Illinois community colleges.
