Advanced Manufacturing Technology Certificate


Academic Map

MACC's certificate in Advanced Manufacturing Technology prepares the student for entry into the general, industrial, manufacturing field. Courses provide skills in basic electrical circuits, electric motor controls, machining, hydraulics, welding, maintenance management, quality control, and production planning. Most courses involve hands-on experience with up-to-date, high-technology equipment found in current manufacturing operations. Upon successful completion of all four Certified Production Technician (CPT) modules, students will receive certification from the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC).
