The Corporate Training department at Pasco-Hernando Community College recently announced a new Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) Certified Production Technician (CPT) training program. The course will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from November 12, 2013 through February 4, 2014 from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the West Campus , in New Port Richey, 10230 Ridge Road.
MSSC is an industry-led training, assessment and certification system focused on the core skills and knowledge needed by the nation’s production workers. The MSSC system awards the Production Technician Certification to new and incumbent workers enrolled in the CPT course, who pass the four manufacturing related modules: manufacturing processes and production; quality practices and measurement; maintenance awareness; and safety. The CPT program is the core component that provides students with the skills and knowledge necessary to maximize their success in more intensive training programs such as CNC Machining, Robotics, Welding, and Mechatronics.
“The MSSC–CPT provides a firm foundation for anyone seeking a job in the manufacturing industry. Prospective employees who earn this certification come to manufacturing jobs mentally prepared for the new working environment and technical skills they will learn on the job,” said Nancy Stephens, Executive Director, Manufacturers Association of Florida.
The MSSC CPT course fee is $1,100 per person. Class size is limited to 30 students. All instructional materials and certifications are included. Employers may qualify for up to 50 percent in training reimbursement funds through Pasco-Hernando Workforce Board. To register or for more information call 727-816-3123 or email . Registration deadline is November 1, 2013 at noon.
