Seimens Mechatronic Systems Certification

Against the backdrop of Siemens’ technical dominance in automation and the growing number of integrated mechatronic systems internationally, the demand for a qualified and competent workforce is increasing.

Along with specialized technical content embedded in college coursework, the Siemens Mechatronic Systems Certification Program (SMSCP) focuses on providing a wide range of skills in troubleshooting and adaptive root cause analysis.

To guarantee a world-class technical skills standard, the Siemens Technik Akademie Berlin has partnered with Western Nevada College to offer this industrial certification training.

Manufacturing Technician 1 Credential

Western Nevada College and the Carson City Public Library have formed an alliance through Nevada’s Working Capital program to promote Manufacturing Technician 1 credentialing for area residents.

The MT1 credential is endorsed by the National Association of Manufacturers. Earning an MT1 credential documents broad-based knowledge of the processes needed to troubleshoot and solve problems beyond the scope of typical machine operations. They have the skills expected in advanced manufacturing positions, including computer-aided design, computer-controlled machine programming, precision measurement, process and machine troubleshooting, problem-solving, machine maintenance, and proficient use of diagnostic and statistical tools.
