Gateway Technical College manufacturing programs earn industry recognition

June 5, 2013

From “Gateway Technical College manufacturing programs earn industry recognition” — Gateway Technical College’s advanced manufacturing programs have received the stamp of approval of a national industry group.

The Manufacturing Institute, a Washington, D.C.-based affiliate of the National Association of Manufacturers that is dedicated to improving and expanding U.S. manufacturing, has named Gateway a charter member of the institute’s “M-List,” which recognizes schools that prepare workers to the level of industry standards in advanced manufacturing.

Gateway is the only charter member in Wisconsin to receive the honor, the college said.

The list recognizes programs that are aligned with industry standards and that award students with credentials in the “NAM-Endorsed Manufacturing Skills Certification System.”

“With such a trusted standard, it takes the guesswork out of hiring welders, machinists, production workers and other key positions that make manufacturing hum,” the institute said.

The list includes community colleges, technical schools, high schools, four-year colleges and universities.
