Request Info

The National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) has endorsed Amatrol’s eLearning as the preferred curricula for its Industrial Technology Maintenance (ITM) credentials. These credentials were created to fill the growing number of unfilled jobs in industrial maintenance with individuals having proven skill sets.

NIMS is widely recognized for the qualified employees produced through their certification programs and Amatrol is the world’s leader in skills-based interactive technical learning. Amatrol’s hands-on, skills-focused interactive technical training include an on-the-job training guide to aid businesses in accommodating NIMS’ credentials to real world training experiences.

Stackable Credentials: Learn and Earn at the Same Time!

The ITM certification features nine stackable certifications, so you can attain your certificate in any of the 9 Duty Areas, such as Maintenance Operations, and use it to find a job while you complete the other eight certifications to earn the full Industrial Technology Maintenance credential. The nine stackable certifications are available in:
