Manufacturing Students Make School History with NIMS Credential

Passaic County Technical Institute’s (PCTI) Manufacturing Technology students made school history when they received their first NIMS credential for Materials, Measurement, and Safety. The industry recognized credential is utilized by employers to identify useful workplace skills. In turn, NIMS (the National Institute for Metalworking Skills) sets industry standards and certifies a skilled workforce for the global economy.

The accomplishment ensures that sixteen of PCTI’s Manufacturing Technology freshmen are one step closer towards applying knowledge learned through career and technical education.
