Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC)

MSSC Boot Camp

Gadsden State Community College’s Adult Education Services hosts a program that leads to a certification through the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council. MSSC is the nation’s leading industry-led training, assessment and certification organization focused on the core technical competencies needed by the nation’s frontline production and material handling workers. The Boot Camp will lead participants to being a Certified Production Technician.



The CPT certification recognizes those who demonstrate mastery of the foundational, core competencies of advanced manufacturing production at the entry-level to front-line supervisor through successful completion of the assessments.
