WASHINGTON, -  The Manufacturing Institute is pleased to recognize 14 Connecticut high schools as the newest members of the M-List. 

Students enrolled in the CTHSS Precision Machining Technology program demonstrate skills and knowledge in machine safety, measuring tools, precision machining fundamentals using; manual milling machines, lathes, and other metal processing machines. Students receive 540 hours of instruction in the career/technical program each year, and 1,500 hours towards a metal trade apprenticeship upon graduation. They are also eligible to participate in Work-Based Learning in grades 11 and 12, allowing companies to hire students during the school day to work on the manufacturing floor.

The Manufacturing Institute’s M-List designation is an acknowledgement of CTHSS’s outstanding precision machining technology program. Enrolled students will be eligible to receive the OSHA 1910 (General Industry) certification and the National Institute of Metalworking (NIMS) Level I Machining Credentials.

The Connecticut Technical High School System prepares graduates for immediate employment, or entry into apprenticeship programs, admission to two-year and four-year colleges, and lifelong learning. CTHSS provides a unique, focused and rigorous educational program for each student who chooses to attend.

The M-List recognizes high schools, community colleges, and universities that are teaching manufacturing students to industry standards. Specifically, these institutions offer students the opportunity to earn NAM-Endorsed Manufacturing Skills Certifications as a standard part of their manufacturing education programs.
