DRMA is working with high schools, career tech centers, and colleges across the region to incorporate industry credentials into their curriculum. It is important for students to be aware of the job market in their area and have the opportunities to succeed in these industries. For that reason, many regional schools are taking notice and beginning to work with DRMA on programs that include industry-recognized credentials, including:
Clark State Community College has incorporated the NIMS Machining Level 1 – Measurement, Materials & Safety credential in their manufacturing FASTRACK program which prepares adults for entry-level careers in manufacturing.
Upper Valley Career Center’s adult program has incorporated the NIMS Machining Level 1 – Measurement, Materials & Safety credential into their Precision Tooling and Machining program.
Northridge High School is offering a manufacturing program to their juniors and seniors which requires successful completion of the CPT credential. About 25 students are on in the process for earning their CPT.
Centerville High School is offering a manufacturing program to their juniors and seniors which requires successful completion of the CPT credential. About 20 students are on course to earn the CPT by the end of the 2018-2019 school year, and several have already earned it and are available for part-time employment right now.
Miami Valley Career Technology Center is gearing up to offer a manufacturing training program for non-precision machining high school students based on the CPT credential.
If you want more information on these programs or have a contact at a school that may be interested in working with DRMA on industry credentials, contact Kayla at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at (937) 949-4000.
