The Manufacturing Skill Standards Council, Alexandria, Va., has received the 2014 Manufacturing Leadership Council Award from Frost & Sullivan. MSSC was recognized for its accomplishments in increasing the number of skilled individuals entering the manufacturing workforce.
MSSC is a training and certification body focused on the industrywide core technical competencies needed by the nation's front-line production and material handling workers. Its certifications, based on industry-defined and federally endorsed national skill standards, enable workers to demonstrate that they have acquired the knowledge and skills increasingly needed in the technology-intensive jobs of the 21st century.
