News From the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC)
The MSSC has signed a collaborative agreement with the National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3), a growing coalition of company facilitated instructor certification programs in more advanced production skills.
NC3 was established to address the need for strong industry partnerships with educational institutions in order to develop, implement and sustain industry-recognized portable certifications that have strong validation and assessment standards. They are "stacked " above the MSSC's entry-level certifications for individual students and workers.
Like MSSC, NC3 is a industry-led nonprofit working actively with community colleges.
