Manufacturing Skills Certification System - Indiana

Washington, DC

Indiana is joining other states in aligning its educational and career pathways with a nationally recognized skills certification system.

Description: 

The project enables Indiana to join four states (North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Washington) that are leading efforts nationally to align educational and career pathways with the National Association of Manufacturers-endorsed Manufacturing Skills Certification System.

Expected Outcomes: 
  • Increase in the number of Hoosiers who will earn a postsecondary credential with value in the workplace.
  • Alignment of stackable industry-recognized skills certifications with educational degree pathways in Ivy Tech community colleges and four-year institutions (Purdue and Indiana Universities’ regional universities) and with career pathways in advanced manufacturing.
  • Modularization of the college curriculum along the pathway to shorten the time to credentials and provide more on- and off-ramps in postsecondary education.
  • Strengthening of employer engagement through a partnership with Conexus Indiana.
