NOCTI/America Makes Additive Manufacturing Credential Virtual Info Session

MatterHackers, joined by NOCTI and America Makes, hosted a 30-minute info session on an exciting opportunity for high schools with 3D printing or additive manufacturing programs.

Credentialing has historically been an important part of workforce development for manufacturing, and America Makes has teamed up with NOCTI (the largest independant credentialing body in the US) to create the very first "Essentials of Additive Manufacturing" credential for high schools.

If your high school is selected as a test site, both the online multiple choice assessment, and the hands-on performance assessment will be available to pilot at NO COST. The pilot testing window for this assessment is April 1 to May 30, 2021. Here's who will be walking you through the opportunity details to determine if your high school would be a good fit:
