Certified Production Technician (CPT)
The online Certified Production Technician (CPT) Career Pathway Certificate program is designed for front-line manufacturing and includes four Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) courses: safety, quality and measurement, manufacturing processes and production, and maintenance awareness. Together these four courses make-up what industry recognizes as the MSSC-CPT. Each course is a stand-alone certification subject to passing the MSSC exam.
Students will be exposed to manufacturing concepts and actions that produce high-quality products, increase productivity, achieve greater customer satisfaction and assure a safe and healthy work environment. Practical cases and examples are investigated and discussed, capitalizing on a blended learning approach including student experience lectures, self-paced study, online labs, and individual/group activities.
