1 National Institute for Metalworking Skills NIMS Is Making the Connection Between Industry and Education Can North Carolina Make the Connection?

2 NIMS Mission The National Institute for Metalworking Skills, Inc. is a nonprofit organization committed to the development of a globally competitive American workforce.

3 In pursuit of the mission, NIMS primary activities include: developing, writing, validating, and maintaining skill standards for each industry; certifying the skills of individuals against the skill standards; ; accrediting training programs that train to the skill standards and meet NIMS quality requirements;. assisting states, schools, and companies to form partnerships to implement the skill standards, achieve program accreditation, and certify the skills of trainees and workers.

25 PENN UNITED TECHNOLOGYS DONALD STEGNER EARNS NATIONS FIRST NIMS CERTIFIED MACHINIST AWARD A major milestone in training of employees in precision manufacturing was reached on Monday, August 21st with the award of the nations first NIMS Certified Journey-level Machinist Certificate to Donald Stegner at Penn United Technology in Cabot, Pennsylvania. The award is the result of an industry wide effort led by the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) to fundamentally change and dramatically improve the way workers are trained in American manufacturing. Mr. Stegner is the first to complete a new competency-based apprenticeship system in which employees test both on the job and in the classroom against national industry standards. The competency-based system replaces the traditional hours-based method and has been three years in the making as a result of a partnership between NIMS and the United States Department of Labor. In the NIMS system, workers demonstrate their competencies by writing programs, setting up and operating machines and controlling quality to achieve industry agreed-upon tolerances and specifications. In order to earn the NIMS Certified Machinist award, Mr. Stegner earned 12 NIMS credentials in which he met rigorous industry performance and knowledge requirements
