The Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC), a non-profit, 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. The nationwide MSSC System, based upon industry-defined and federally-endorsed standards, offers both entry-level and incumbent workers the opportunity to demonstrate that they have acquired the skills increasingly needed in the technology-intensive jobs of the 21st century. MSSC offers two certifications for this workforce:
The CPT Certification addresses the core technical competencies of higher skilled production workers in all sectors of manufacturing. MSSC awards certificates to individuals who pass any of its Production Modules: Safety; Quality Practices & Measurement; Manufacturing Processes & Production; Maintenance Awareness; and Green Production and a full Certified Production Technician (CPT) Certification to those who pass all four original modules (NOTE: At this time, Green is not a requirement for full CPT certification.)
The CLT Certification addresses the core technical competencies of higher skilled, front-line material handling and distribution workers in all supply chain facilities from factories to warehouses, distribution centers and transporters. MSSC awards the foundational-level Certified Logistics Associate (CLA) certificate and the mid-level Certified Logistics Technician (CLT) certification. CLA is a prerequisite for CLT.
