The National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) continues its efforts to establish standards for training and skill validation in precision manufacturing with the release of a new online tool to connect competencies to career credentials.

Connecting those credentials to the specific jobs and skills requirements needed across the country is the goal for creating this new online tool. The “NIMS Career Pathway Tool” is designed to help employers, job seekers and educators understand the numerous career paths available in the industry and explain how NIMS credentials help ensure skills at a variety of levels.

For employers, the tool helps enhance hiring practices, develop better job postings and how to incorporate credentialing into training operations. Educators can use the tool for curriculum design that is tied to industry standards and linked to nationally recognized credentials. Students can use this information to plan a career path by learning which credentials fit their goals and better translate their respective skill sets developed in their training program.
