The Machining Track is a competency-project based program that allows students to complete modules based on their level of skill proficiency and hands on projects. AmSkills uses The National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) for machining classes. There are several benefits to this program such as an easy-to-follow curriculum, standardized testing, and opportunities that can result in nationally recognized certifications. NIMS offers certifications which include Machinist, CNC Machinist, Tool & Die maker and Mold Maker.
The Mechatronics Track is a competency-project based program that follows PMMI certifications. PMMI Mechatronics Certification Tests are based on industry-developed standards and recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor.
