Introduction to the Engineering Technology Support Specialist Certificate (CCC) Program

A sequence of courses that provides coherent and rigorous content aligned with challenging academic standards and relevant technical knowledge and skills needed to prepare for further education and careers in the manufacturing career cluster; provides technical skill proficiency, and includes competency-based applied learning that contributes to the academic knowledge, higher-order rea­soning and problem-solving skills, work attitudes, general employability skills, technical skills, and occupation-specific skills, and knowledge of all aspects of the manufacturing career cluster. The content includes but is not limited to communication skills, leadership skills, human relations and employability skills, technical competency, safe and efficient work practices and a combination of theory and laboratory activities to gain the necessary cognitive and manipulative skills to perform preventive and corrective maintenance and support for engineering design, processes, production, testing, and/or maintaining product quality.  This program focuses on broad, transferable skills and stresses understanding and demonstration of the following elements of the Engineering Technology and Industrial Applications: production materials and processes, quality, computer-aided drafting, electronics, mechanics, instrumentation and safety.

The 18 credit hour certificate is the Technical Core to our Engineering Technology A.S. program. The Engineering Technology Support Specialist certificate has been defined to align with the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council’s (MSSC). MSSC skill standards define the knowledge, skills, and performance needed for manufacturing workers. After completing the Technical Core and the General Education requirements, students should be prepared to pass the MSSC – CPT Certified Production Technician (CPT) Certification.
