MSSC and Amatrol launch “Skill Boss” at SkillsUSA in KY
On June 22 at the 53rd Annual National Leadership and Skills Conference hosted by SkillsUSA, MSSC and Amatrol launched the MSSC CPT + Skill Boss training machine for Certified Production Technicians (CPT) , a revolutionary assessment and training device engineered by Amatrol. Lightweight and portable, “Skill Boss” will enable any high school, community college, and manufacturer to offer CPT hands-on certification and training in advanced manufacturing core technical competencies at low cost. (See Skill Boss brochure for details).
“As a longtime supporter of the CPT program, GE Appliances greatly welcomes the Skill Boss hands-on certification component to the CPT training program. We believe giving students the opportunity to demonstrate what they know is just as important as their knowledge gained through their coursework,” states Eric Leef, Executive HR leader of the Supply Chain at GE Appliances, a Haier company.
“The launch of the Skill Boss supports one of our goals to engage young people in gaining the higher skills needed in today’s technology-intensive manufacturing world,” said Sam Bottum, a SkillsUSA board member and Chief Marketing Officer at Snap-on Incorporated (NYSE: SNA), a global manufacturer of tools, equipment, diagnostics, and systems solutions for professional users. “At SkillsUSA, we emphasize not only the ‘cool factor’ of today’s high-tech manufacturing jobs but also the opportunity to enjoy a high quality of life.”
