NIMS launches employee-training certificate program
The National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) has launched what it terms a major breakthrough in the entire field of employee training. After two years of work with manufacturing companies across the nation, NIMS has developed a system for training and certifying company personnel who are responsible for delivering critical on-the-job training. NIMS work was led by an expert panel comprised of company human resources and training specialists.
The new products were field tested and piloted in 17 key manufacturing states.
President of the NIMS Board of Directors, Gregory Chambers said “These products will set the bar for on-the-job training delivery in the manufacturing industry. The mass exodus of employees set to retire in the next few years demands that companies have systems and processes in place to effectively transfer skills from one employee to another. Knowledge management and skills transfer will be the primary building blocks of the innovative and agile workplace.”
The certification includes both demonstrated on-the-job performances and theory examination.
NIMS sets skill standards for the nation’s precision metalworking industry and certifies individual skills against these standards.
