Accreditation Renewed at Earnest Pruett Center of Technology

Keeping up with today’s industry skills standards, the Earnest Pruett Center of Technology (Hollywood, AL) has renewed the NIMS Accreditation of its Precision Machine Technology Program as of Friday, May 25, 2012.  This is the program’s third time establishing itself as a NIMS-Accredited program, as it set this benchmark first in May 1999 and again in 2006.  NIMS applauds this program for demonstrating its commitment to meeting NIMS National Industry Standards within its metalworking training.

Recently NIMS Evaluator and Team Leader Wes Ellis (of the Alabama Technology Network) conducted a rigorous On-Site Evaluation at Earnest Pruett's machine tool facility and was highly complementary of the program.  His evaluation noted the clear-cut purpose of the training, which is supported by a variety of classroom activities, the “excellent instructor,” Mr. Hugo DeAngelis, as well as the support of the tech center’s administration.  This program is also a Haas Technical Education Center.

Congratulations to everyone involved in this accreditation renewal, especially Instructor Hugo DeAngelis!  Special thanks to Wes Ellis for conducting the on-site visit!
