The Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) passed some major milestones and had other successes that made “October Manufacturing Month” a banner month for certifying industry-wide, front-line workers in advanced manufacturing and logistics.
● Exceeded 2016 target of 1,700 MSSC-trained instructors and 1,000 MSSC-authorized assessment centers, mostly in community colleges and high schools, in 49 states
● Issued 100,000+ credentials to date (to some 50,000 individuals) under the MSSC Certified Production Technician (CPT) and Certified Logistics Technician (CLT) programs
● Received first data from its growing “Pre-release” program in federal and state prisons showing that those who secured CPT credentials had a recidivism rate of only 12% after leaving prison vs. national rate of 76.7%.
Other notable successes this month:
● Issued the annual 2016 Edition of MSSC’s national Production Standards and Logistics Standards, which are available without charge at www.msscusa.org
● Met its goal of giving MSSC CLA/CLT training and testing to 4,300+ active duty members of armed services at 29 bases, plus to members of the Guard and Reserves
● Received National Science Foundation (NSF) grant through the Florida Advanced Technological Education Center (FLATE) to enhance the ability of Florida high schoolers to secure the full Certified Production Technician (CPT) Certification, for which the Florida Department of Education allows 15 community college credits

To achieve its original goal under the National Skill Standards Act of full-scale nationwide deployment, MSSC calls on its community to assist in two key ways:
● From industry: Put “MSSC preferred” in job listings for front-line workers
● From education: Offer MSSC courses for credit in high schools and colleges
