Posted on March 15, 2009. Filed under: education, manufacturing |

The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and its non-profit subsidiary the Manufacturing Institute, in partnership with the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) and other industry groups, has announced a new skills certification system based on needed skills and competencies identified by manufacturers.

The NAM system will focus on core personal effectiveness skills, academic competencies, general workplace skills, and industry-wide technical skills required by manufacturing employers in all sectors, for entry-level manufacturing positions.

For positions beyond entry-level, the SME certification programs have been incorporated.  These are Certification for Manufacturing Engineers (CMfgE) and Certification for Manufacturing Technologists (CMfgT).
