Certified Production Technician

Manufacturing Lab Equipment

The purpose of the Certified Production Technician (CPT) program is to recognize through the certification, individuals who demonstrate mastery of the core competencies of manufacturing production through successful completion of the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) certification assessments. The goal of the CPT certification program is to train entry-level production workers and/or raise the level of performance of current production workers. Certified employees provide their employers the skills and knowledge to increase the company’s productivity and competitiveness. At the conclusion of the MSSC modules, the student will qualify to sit for the MSSC certified assessment exam. The exam must be taken at a MSSC testing site.

The MSSC-CPT courses (MFG 101 - 104) are available online allowing the student to prepare for the MSSC assessments completely online.

MSSC assessments are taken at JWCC or any authorized MSSC testing center.
