COLLEGE AND CAREER OUTLOOK
Students Occupationally and Academically Ready (SOAR) programs of study prepare today’s student for tomorrow’s high demand and high wage careers.
See how PA Bureau of Career and Technical Education SOAR Programs of Study taken at the High School level may transfer into participating postsecondary institutions and technical centers.
Skills in occupations within advanced manufacturing are validated through the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) credentials. The credentials are earned through secondary, post secondary, apprenticeship programs and work-based curricula that include both “hands-on” performance and theory tests. NIMS credentials allow employers to hone their credentialing requirements and choose those certifications that are applicable to the needs of the company.
Machine Technology students can earn the following NIMS credentials:
- NIMS Job Planning, Benchwork, and Layout
- NIMS Measurement, Materials, and Safety
- NIMS Drill Press I
- NIMS Turning I (Chucking)
- NIMS Turning I (Between Centers)
- NIMS Milling I
- NIMS Grinding I
- NIMS Certificate of Special Merit
- NIMS CNC Lathe Operations
