In the 2 years since opening the doors to its metalworking training facility in San Diego, Workshops for Warriors has served more than two hundred of our country's veterans, making it an unquestionable candidate for NIMS Accreditation - which was officially awarded to the training center on April 17. Based on industry-set standards for quality, NIMS Accreditation is the highest benchmark a precision machining program can receive within the United States.

Possibly breaking the NIMS record for the fastest accreditation process to date, the staff and faculty at Workshops for Warriors completed all requirements for accreditation in less than 9 months - a feat that is not often achieved by education institutions or industry training programs alike, according to NIMS. Requirements of accreditation include a Self-Evaluation, Faculty Credentialing Requirement, Student Credentialing Requirement, and a 2-day On-Site Evaluation at the Workshops facility. Led by retired Naval officer turned Workshops for Warriors president Hernán Luis y Prado, the program passed all of these hurdles with flying colors, NIMS says.

The On-Site Evaluation occurred on March 25-26 and was conducted by a three-person NIMS evaluation team.

After a thorough facility inspection and interviews with all involved parties, the evaluation team was highly complementary of Workshops for Warriors, giving the program high ratings in the evaluation areas of:
