“Made in the USA” is making a comeback and as a result, manufacturing is booming.

The growth in manufacturing is creating jobs— not just jobs, but good jobs. These are in-demand jobs with good wages and benefits. The Certified Production Technician certification can help you learn about these jobs and get hired.

Certified Production Technician

The Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) credentialing system leading to a CPT covers the four critical production functions, as defined by MSSC’s industry-led, nationally validated skills standards, common to all sectors of manufacturing.

Certified Production Technician (CPT) addresses the core technical competencies of higher skilled production workers in all sectors of manufacturing: Safety, Quality & Continuous Improvement, Manufacturing Processes & Production, and Maintenance Awareness.

Each area is addressed with a separate assessment. MSSC training and assessments are organized around those four modules. An individual can earn a Certificate if they pass one or more assessments. However, they must pass all four assessments to earn the full CPT certification. Participants also gain the OSHA 30 Certification upon completion of the Safety module- a $400 value!
