The National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3) was established to address the need for strong industry partnerships with educational institutions in order to develop, implement and sustain industry-recognized portable certifications that have strong validation and assessment standards. www.NC3.net
As one of the leading electrical technician training programs in the Midwest, NDSCS works with industry partners to construct a technically skilled workforce . NDSCS has now enhanced the program by providing students the opportunity to acquire professional certifications from Greenlee and Snap-on while they are in the program.
John Travis of NDSCS administered the first Snap-on meter certifications during the Spring 2017 semester. Snap-on Incorporated is a leading global innovator, manufacturer and marketer of tools, equipment, diagnostics, repair information and systems solutions for professional users performing critical tasks. www.snapon.com
NDSCS plans to offer Greenlee Conduit Bending, Conduit Pathway (hole-making) and VDV (voice/data/video) Certifications by Spring 2018 to students, with plans to host certification events for local and regional contractors in the future.
For more than 140 years, Greenlee has been a provider of quality tools to the woodworking industry and, for over 70 years, to the electrical industry as well. Proof of that commitment is in the modern facilities, state-of-the-art production equipment, and enhanced quality assurance programs which comprise the Greenlee way of doing business today. www.greenlee.com
