The Certified Production Technician (CPT) is a program sponsored by the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council.

It recognizes individuals who demonstrate mastery of the core competencies of front line manufacturing production at the entry-level through front-line supervisor.

Mastery is determined through successful completion of four certification assessments on Safety; Quality Practices & Measurement; Manufacturing Processes & Production; and Maintenance Awareness

The purpose of the CPT certification program is to raise the level of performance of production workers and to help employers ensure their workforce increases the company’s productivity and competitiveness.

Lester Stephenson, founder, is a holder of the CPT certification. He is able to call upon his experiences from consulting and training in more that 150 manufacturing plants to provide a CPT course that is rich in real world content.
