Manufacturing Production Technician

The Manufacturing Production Technician program is a non-credit 180 hour program. Individuals may enter the program without a high school diploma or GED; however, Southern Union as well as the credentialing agency strongly recommends that individuals enrolling in this program perform at a 9th-grade math and 10th-grade reading level as well as possess basic computer skills before enrolling in the Manufacturing Production Technician training program.

The purpose of the Manufacturing Production Technician program is to prepare in- dividuals for the MSSC credentialing program and to recognize, through a series of assessments and certification, individuals who demonstrate mastery of the core com- petencies of manufacturing production at the front-line (entry-level through front-line supervisor) through successful completion of their certification assessments. The goal of the program is to raise the level of performance of production workers both to assist the individuals in finding higher-wage jobs and to help employers ensure their workforce increases the company‚Äôs productivity and that will help prepare an individual to sit for the MSSC Certified Production Technician certification assessments which, upon completion, will lead to a nationally recognized industry credential.
