NIST MEP Credentials Survey Due June 30, 2017
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), through the Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), is embarking on a very important activity to determine the use and value of manufacturing credentials. There are many choices of credentials but a significant lack of independent research regarding the quality, market value, and effectiveness of manufacturing specific credentials.
This research will provide information to U.S. Manufacturers, career counselors, and job seekers on Manufacturing Credentials and will be helpful in reducing training costs and narrowing the skills gap. In Massachusetts, the MACWIC certification is a recognized state specific credential.
On behalf of the NIST MEP and MassMEP, we are asking you to participate in this important initiative. Use the link below to access the survey:
Thank you for your time and attention. We request the survey to be completed by June 30, 2017. Please don’t hesitate to call or email me with any questions.
