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.
