To qualify for the M-List, schools must meet the following three criteria:

  • Deliver a manufacturing-related program that includes at least one NAM-Endorsed technical certification as a standard, embedded component of the program and allows students to advance in or into a for-credit academic pathway.  Delivery of instruction in a non-credit environment will satisfy this criterion as long as standardized, equivalent credit is associated with earning the certification and can be applied to a for-credit program of study.

  • Agree to a Statement of Principles and pledge to work to build a robust system of certifications to serve the skilled workforce needs of manufacturers in their community.

  • Maintain accreditation by an agency or association recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
