Industry skills standards define competence for workers in a given industry. For machining, those standards are developed by The National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS). The Grayson County Technology Center Machining program recently had 11 students plus instructor Michael Critchelow take the certification test, with an astounding 100% pass rate. 

Certification is a rigorous process, and a valuable tool for students as they enter the workforce. It shows prospective employers that they have demonstrated benchmark knowledge, skills, and abilities required to perform capably in the workplace.

Newly certified are, Front Center: Kelly Hibbard; Front Row, L – R: Nolin Logsdon, Richard Robinson, Colton Starcher, Jacob Fisher, Nicholas Douthitt; Back: George Priddy, Christopher Williams, Instructor Michael Critchelow, Jacob Higdon, Kyler Embry, and Tyler Fields (not pictured).
