DMC Certification Program

The Aerospace industry is experiencing a shortage of qualified aviation professionals that is threatening the expansion and maintenance of the Global airline fleets over the next decade. The industry is out pacing its workforce and many employers are searching for skilled applicants that can hit the ground running. Industry-recognized certifications are a great way to get the focused training and specialized skills needed to make an impact in the future of aerospace. NC3 and DMC's training is creating an opportunity for individuals to enter a workforce that is dynamic, stable, innovative, and growing.

About DMC

Daniels Manufacturing Corporation (DMC) is the recognized leading manufacturer of application tooling for the aircraft, aerospace, and high reliability electronics industries, with experience that spans seven decades. Our products have been used on virtually every Defense System, Aircraft Program, Land or Sea Going Transport System, Space Exploration Program, and in many other types of manufacturing and support activities.

History of the Partnership

DMC has supported the aerospace industry for over 70 and we were searching for a platform to help train the technicians and engineers of tomorrow. We knew we needed to inspire students at the high school and college level and show them that the future of aerospace is bright and that they are critically needed. NC3 saw the same need we did, and together, we are filling the gaps in the aerospace workforce to create a brighter and safer industry for the future. DMC is also proud to work with NC3's founding industry partner, Snap-on Inc., to distribute our Precision Electrical Termination Certification Kit.

Value of the Partnership

Our partnership with NC3 and the Train-the-Trainer program is helping us develop the workforce of tomorrow with “Skills for Life”. It's more than just learning one discipline, it giving individuals of all ages the skills they need to make a positive impact on their community, our economy, and their families future.

Future of the Partnership

We want to continue to provide the instructors and trainers within our industry with the skills they need to help develop our youth. In the future, we believe the Precision Electrical Termination Certification can be in every aviation high school and college as a supplement to the current curriculum. We also believe the FAA will see the benefits of this program and implement an FAA certified course based upon the curriculum of PETC.

Transform Your Program

The current landscape of workforce training has relied upon “on-the-job” training. Unfortunately, we are seeing a huge gap between those leaving the workforce due to retirement and those entering it. This leaves the traditional model of knowledge transfer with a knowledge gap. Certifications are a great way to fill this gap, they offer a structured learning environment that reinforces the curriculum they are learning in “theory” with hands-on labs. When they test and pass the course, they are ready to hit the ground running with the support of DMC and NC3.
