MESSAGE FROM MSSC CEO, LEO REDDY

Thank you for your interest in joining the MSSC community.  The MSSC certification systems have taken many years and millions of dollars to develop and would not have been possible without our community’s participation.

Taking the MSSC Courses and assessments is an important first step to prepare for jobs in high-demand/high-wage advanced manufacturing and logistics fields. Individuals that achieve MSSC certifications have the core technical skills needed to be successful front-line workers in manufacturing and logistics. MSSC is an essential foundational part of the NAM-Endorsed Skills Certification System-the national flagship initiative to address the skills gap crisis facing U.S. manufacturers.  

The rapid spread of productivity-enhancing technologies in America’s factories requires a next generation of workers with advanced manufacturing technical skills.  And, of course, there remain millions of students and job seekers who will increase their employment chances if they can show an industry-recognized, national certification.    

The National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS) recommendation that postsecondary educational 

institutions award college credit to individuals is a significant step towards changing the lingering perception held by most concerning manufacturing and logistics being places for unskilled labor.  This alternative credit pathway will benefit students, employers and communities by expanding postsecondary opportunities for returning service members, dislocated and emerging workers, career and technical education students.

The long-term vision of the MSSC is to train, assess and certify a substantial portion of the nation’s production and supply chain logistics workforce against high performance skill standards.  We believe the outcome will be a larger pool of workers with the right skills to enhance the innovation, productivity and competitiveness of U.S. based manufacturing.

We sincerely welcome you to our community,
