DRMA is working with educators across the region to incorporate industry credentials into their curriculum. In last month’s newsletter, we listed the area schools who are offering industry recognized credentials. This month was have updated information from our educational partners:
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. UVCC is also a recognized member of ApprenticeOhio and places students with employers through that program. For manufacturers who also have logistics needs, UVCC is offering two logistics certifications through MSSC (CLA and CLT).
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. There are currently 17 students enrolled in their CPT program, and several students are currently interning with companies in the area.
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.
