Manufacturing Skills Standards Council System Overview


Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC)

The Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) is a nationwide, industry-based Skills Standards, Assessment and Certification System for all sectors of manufacturing. Formed in 1998, federally recognized as a voluntary partnership for manufacturing under the auspices of the National Skill Standards Act, the MSSC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that brought together nearly 400 companies and 200 leading organizations that can reach the majority of the nation's 400,000 manufacturers and 15 million manufacturing workers. The MSSC is a unique business, labor, education, and government partnership built by the National Coalition for Advanced Manufacturing(NACFAM) and the AFL-CIO's Working for America Institute (WAI).

The MSSC System measures and certifies the foundational skills and knowledge of students, educators and frontline production workers from entry-level to first line supervision in all sectors of manufacturing. The system includes assessments in four modules: Manufacturing Processes and Production, Quality Assurance, Maintenance, and Safety. MSSC is more than developing an individual skill standard; it is about establishing a Skills Standard System.
