Manufacturing Standards Skill Certification (MSSC)

Wiregrass Ga Tech is an authorized Manufacturing Standards Skill Certification (MSSC) assessment center. MSSC is an industry-led training, assessment and certification system focused on the core skills and knowledge needed by the nation's front-line production and material handling workers. The MSSC system is based upon industry-defined and federally-endorsed national standards.

The Army COOL, Navy and Marine Corps COOL, and USAF Training Fund sites have approved MSSC assessments. MSSC assessments have also been approved by the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs. This means that veterans across the country can use their Post-9/11 GI Bill to pay for assessments.

*Note: VA will reimburse eligible candidates the $60 registration fee and the $50 assessment fee.
