NCMI graduates its 100th Certified Production Technician
MSSC congratulates North Carolina Manufacturing Institute (NCMI) on its 100th Certified Production Technician (CPT) success story.
According to a press release from Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, “Since the official launch date of the NCMI initiative in April 2015, over 100 individuals have had their lives and their families’ lives transformed. On average, 88% of graduates have full-time employment within 1 to 2 months of graduation, with most of them at local employers who have partnered with the Institute. The NCMI was created by partners including the Centralina Workforce Development Board, Rowan-Cabarrus Community College (RCCC), and leaders from the Chambers of Commerce and Economic Development in Rowan and Cabarrus counties. Last year, the Institute expanded into Iredell County. Mitchell Community College, Mooresville-South Iredell Chamber of Commerce, Statesville Chamber of Commerce, and both economic development agencies from Statesville and Mooresville all joined the effort.”
As one of the NCMI employer partners’ recruiters said, “CPT hires are much more confident and immediately have a basic understanding of what is going on in the plant. This makes them catch on to things much more rapidly than a new hire without this certification.”
