Certification – The MS and MT1 are industry-wide, technical skills certifications and “stack” upon the National Career Readiness Certificate. The MS and MT1 are endorsed by the National Association for Manufacturers (NAM) and are included in the NAM-endorsed Manufacturing Institute a National Skills Certification System. MT1 attainment may also qualify for up to six (6) advanced standing credits toward higher education degrees at specific educational institutions.
