Green Production Certification


The Green Production Certification Program applies to all frontline production technicians in all sectors of manufacturing. The eligible population for this certificate expands far beyond just technicians in green product sites (e.g., wind, solar equipment producers).

Green Production is defined as workplace activities across all industries within the manufacturing sector that require the use of equipment, technologies, and processes that will improve the environmental performance of manufacturing companies.

This module is based on industry-defined, nationally validated national skill standards and includes a comprehensive set of system tools: curriculum, textbook, e-learning, instructor certification training, a national registry, assessments, and credentialing.


Individuals demonstrate their understanding of the core skills and knowledge through one assessment based upon MSSC’s® industry-defined, nationally validated skill standards. Delivered online or paper pencil, this assessment contains 85-90 multiple-choice questions. MSSC strongly recommends that individuals be at a 9th-grade math and 10th-grade reading level.

For more information about MSSC’s policies on certification, please see our Certification Policies page.

  • Download the Green Certification document that bears the NAM logo (NAM-endorsed Skills Certification)
