Distance/Correspondence Learning

Are you unable to attend classes at a campus or educational facility? Distance learning programs can be completed at your own pace and from your own location. Industry related courses are geared toward union and non-union workers, but are also excellent for individuals wanting to learn a trade for personal growth. Hours earned upon completion can be used toward many apprenticeship programs in a variety of industries. Call us to enroll.

MSSC Courses available at Century College!

msss-certification-sodering The Manufacturing Skills Standard Certification (MSSC) Certified Production Technician program recognizes individuals who demonstrate mastery of the core competencies of advanced manufacturing production through successful completion of the certification assessments. This certificate is the gold standard within the manufacturing industry and helps individuals find higher-wage jobs while helping employers ensure their workforce is productive and competent. This is being offered for the first time through Century College as a self-paced course (available January 1, 2024) with access to an MSSC-certified instructor. Participants who prefer a more hands-on experience can choose an instructor-led course with scheduled meeting times.
