The Manufacturing Institute and its partners in the Skills Certification System set a goal to issue 500,000 certifications by the end of 2016. 

In June, 2011, at an event at Northern Virginia Community College, President Obama highlighted the Skills Certification System as a model for industry-based credentials and endorsed our goal of 500,000 certifications.

By December 2012, over 173,000 certifications had been issued. To find out how to use the skills certification system in your company, click here.
