THE GOLD STANDARD

MSSC is the gold standard for certification of front-line manufacturing and logistics workers and offers the only two certifications in those industries which have been ANSI accredited under ISO Standard 17024.  MSSC's standards-based, industry-led national programs: offer workers and students an opportunity to document their skills and knowledge; allow educators and training providers to meet needs of the regional workforce and local industry; provide employers with a pipeline of potential employees with a standardized set of core competencies. 

In addition to international ANSI/ISO accreditation, MSSC has been formally recognized by multiple state and national organizations including:

  • National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS) recommends college credit for MSSC Courses
