NIMS Career Pathway Tool Available to Employers, Educators, and Students

New Online Tool to Connect Competencies to Credentials to Careers

As the industry standard for training and skill validation in precision manufacturing, NIMS offers over 50 credentials that verify skills in a variety of job functions and processes. But, how do these credentials relate to the specific jobs and skills in-demand across the industry? 

To answer that question, our team created the NIMS Career Pathway Tool to help employers, job seekers, and educators understand the numerous career pathways in the industry and what NIMS credentials really mean - how they help ensure skills at a variety of levels and how they can be earned to enter and advance in careers.

How does the Pathway Tool help?

  • Employers can use it to enhance hiring practices, develop better job postings, and incorporate NIMS credentials into training operations.
  • Educators can use this tool to design their curriculum, aligned with industry standards and directly linked to nationally recognized credentials.
  • Students can use this information to plan their career path by learning which credentials fit their personal career goals and to better translate their respective skills sets developed in their training program.
