Certified Production TechnicianRequest Info
In today’s technology driven society, capturing the attention of high school students can be a daunting task. Active engagement in learning provides students with the necessary skills to competently meet the challenges in today’s workplace. Regardless of their career path, high schools must prepare students who can engage in their work, work effectively with others, identify and solve problems, and continue to acquire the necessary skills to succeed in their work roles.
The Certified Production Technician (CPT) program enables students to build these foundational skills. The program’s interactive multimedia curriculum uses a competency-based instructional design that teaches Manufacturing Skill Standards Council’s (MSSC) nationally recognized standards. An engaging combination of video, text, audio, 3D animation and interactive activities, the CPT curriculum captures the attention of the student and keeps them engaged through the entire learning process – igniting their passion for achievement.
Employer Preferred – Nationally Recognized Certification!
Skills for workplace success!
Advanced Manufacturing offers some of the highest paying and most satisfying career opportunities available today, such as process technicians, control technicians, and quality control technicians. High School Students heading towards a career in manufacturing must demonstrate a broad array of critical technical skills. The Manufacturing Skill Standards Council’s (MSSC) CPT Program provides training and credentialing in the foundational areas of safety, quality, manufacturing processes and maintenance.
In addition to teaching foundational technical skills, CPT address cross-functional skills, such as communications, teamwork, customer awareness and workplace conduct. Recognized by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) as the foundation of its National Skills Certification System, CPT is truly a portable credential.

Rich Multimedia + Strong Curriculum = Effective Learning
Engaging content makes students want to learn!
Learning often depends on being able to keep the student focused and engaged. Every learner is different which means that effective learning material incorporates all of the learning styles – text, narration, and graphics. Amatrol incorporates all three learning styles into all of our programs. To further engage the learner, we target the use of animation, video, pictures, drawings and graphics to bring balance and interest to the material. When any one thing is dominant, students simply become bored. Amatrol keeps the material and the student moving – making learning fun!
Animations are particularly useful in showing a student internal operations of machines and processes.
Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words. Amatrol balances use of animation with video to show real world application and hands-on job tasks.
Amatrol’s CPT Program contains many interactive exercises where students interact by pushing buttons, operating devices, identifying components, and more. This interactivity greatly enhances retention.
All the fancy graphics, animation and video in the world do nothing by themselves – they are only effective as part of well developed, thorough curriculum. Amatrol’s Certified Production Technical Program starts with Safety and guides the student through 39 self-paced learning units, preparing students for the MSSC Certified Production Technical assessments. MSSC strongly recommends the Amatrol Certified Production Technical program for this reason – it really gets the job done. The Certified Production Technician Program by MSSC is an industry-led standards-based training, assessment and certification system focused on the core skills and knowledge needed by the nation’s advanced manufacturing workforce. The foundational areas of certification include safety, quality, manufacturing processes, and maintenance.

Industrial Athlete of the Future!
The Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) is an industry-led standards-based, training, assessment and certification system focused on the core skills and knowledge needed by the nation’s production and supply chain logistics workers. The nationwide MSSC System, based upon industry-defined and federally-endorsed national standards, offers both entry-level and incumbent workers the opportunity to demonstrate that they have acquired the skills increasingly needed in the technology-intensive jobs of the 21st century.
Certified Production Technician (CPT): The MSSC System awards certificates to individuals who pass any of its four Production modules: Safety; Quality Practices & Measurement; Manufacturing Processes & Production; and Maintenance Awareness and a full Certified Production Technician (CPT) Certification to those who pass all four.
Applicable to all sectors of manufacturing and all supply chain facilities, the MSSC “20/20 Vision” is to assess 20% of the nation’s front-line manufacturing production and material handling workers in 20 years. If attained, this vision would assess over 3 million workers during that period.
MSSC offers industry a new set of tools to ensure that both entering and incumbent workers are flexible, easily trainable, and highly motivated knowledge workers able to keep pace with technological change—the “Industrial Athlete of the Future.” The key activities against which MSSC trains and assesses both production and logistics workers are attached.
Just as “ASE” (Automotive Service Excellence) certification is the standard for quality in the automotive repair sector, the CPT Certifications will set the quality standard for front-line workers in our nation’s factories, distribution centers, warehouses, and transportation hubs. MSSC benefits to employers include:
- A pipeline of skilled workers by embedding MSSC certification training into the schools
- Decreased recruitment costs by providing job candidates with industry-recognized credentials
- Elimination of remedial training costs by providing well prepared workers
- A diagnostic tool to benchmark incumbent workers against a high-performance national standard
- Increased ROI for training by targeting it against the gaps identified by the MSSC diagnostic tool
- An aid to attracting, motivating and retaining qualified employees
