Workshop Overview

The technology-intensive advanced manufacturing jobs of the 21st century require targeted production and logistics skills and knowledge. Companies must compete for in-demand employees with the credentials and skills of the “Industrial Athlete of the Future.”

The Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) offers an industry-led, training, assessment, and certification system focused on the core skills and knowledge needed by the nation’s front-line production and material handling workers. The two MSSC Systems are based upon industry-defined and federally endorsed national standards and provide individuals an opportunity to demonstrate acquired skills in advanced manufacturing roles.

PACE Industries, in Harrison, Arkansas, is one company that has very successfully implemented this program to create a pipeline of advanced manufacturing talent. The program addresses core technical competencies of higher skilled production workers in all sectors of manufacturing. Credentials are awarded to individuals who pass any of the four modules based on the scores provided for the secondary market.

Attendees will learn:

How this program works

How to implement a program

Who and what companies can benefit from this program

How we can expect education and business to change in Arkansas


Presenters include:

Ethan Robinson, Workforce Coordinator at Pace Industries

Neil Reddy, Executive Director of the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council

The Honorable Shane Broadway, Vice-President for University Relations for the Arkansas State University System

Registration and Fees

Fees (including all materials) are $45 for the Seminar & Lunch. Fees for the Luncheon Program Only are HRMA Members: $22 and Guests: $25.
