MoManufacturingWINs Three Advanced Manufacturing Career Pathways

St. Louis Community College is pleased to announce that our online application at www.stlcc.edu/mmw for exploring three new advanced manufacturing career pathways is now open: Two pathways prepare participants for MSSC credentials as Certified Logistics Associates or Certified Production Technicians. The third pathway, for Precision Machining Technology, incorporates NIMS credentials in a variety of basic machine shop skills along with milling, turning and CNC set up and operations. All three of these pathways utilize online learning and an accelerated schedule to have adults back in the workforce as quickly as possible. More information on these pathways, the grant and the consortium are available on the website.

The development of these three new pathways is being funded by the MoManufacturingWINS, a statewide consortium that STLCC is a part of, which received a Department of Labor Round 2 TAACCCT grant last fall. MoManufacturingWINs focuses on preparing workers to earn nationally recognized credentials endorsed by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). In particular, St. Louis Community College is focusing on the National Career Readiness Certificate and industry credentials from The National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) and the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC).

What MoManufacturingWINs means for you as a job seeker is:

  • Very low-cost or no cost training in a high-demand, high growth industry from one of Missouri’s premier training institutions.
  • Personal assistance along the way from trained, professional Career Coaches and other helpful college staff.
  • Powerful certifications like the National Career Readiness Certificate to boost your employability and job competitiveness.

If you or someone you know is interested in this opportunity, the first step is to submit the online application. Upon submission, you will be invited to register for an information session. By the time you leave the information session, you will know more about each pathway and the careers it leads to. It all starts with a click on the MoManufacturingWINs online application!
