Whether you’re just starting out in the field of manufacturing or are working at the supervisory level, CCV’s Certified Production Technician (CPT) certification is an industry-recognized credential that can help set you apart. CPT certification means you’ve mastered the skills, can do the work, and are committed to your career in manufacturing. CPT certification also means you’ll qualify for higher-wage jobs and positions with stronger room for growth. Credits earned through the CPT certification can be applied to CCV’s STEM studies associate degree program.  

CCV programs are stackable, meaning they build on one another as you progress toward your goals. Individual classes can be applied to credentials, credentials to certificates, and certificates to degrees.
