December 10, 2020

SCMEP just launched their new online Certified Manufacturing Associate (CMfgA) training program! SCMEP has partnered with SME and ToolingU to deliver this program so anyone can become certified from the safety of their homes.

This program is the only certification program in the manufacturing industry that is focused on basic manufacturing concepts and demonstrates an individual’s potential for high-demand, entry-level manufacturing roles.

Covering fundamental topics such as assembly, maintenance, machining, and more, this nationally recognized certification demonstrates the individual has basic manufacturing knowledge and may be an ideal candidate for entry-level manufacturing employment. With the Certified Manufacturing Associate credential as a strong foundation, an employee can continue with on-the-job training and further education to earn additional certifications and advance in their career.

The program is now available for purchase on SCMEP Online.

Here is what you can expect with this program:

  • 25 core courses and 2 electives
  • After sign-up, students have access to the training content for 3 months
  • Each class lasts approximately one hour, the training program can be completed in less than a few weeks
  • Students are required to pass an online exam at the end of each module
  • Upon successful completion of the program, students will be able to download and print a SCMEP certificate of completion
  • The cost is $350

If, upon completion of the program, a student wishes to take the SME CMfgA exam, they must coordinate directly with SME. Please note that in this instance there would be an additional fee payable to SME.
