PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, announces the release of two new study guides to accompany PMMI’s Mechatronics Certificate tests - Industrial Electricity 1 and Mechanical Components 1. PMMI’s Mechatronics Certificate tests help manufacturers to assess the capabilities of current employees and identify levels of competency for new candidates.

PMMI Mechatronics Certificates are recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor and The National Association of Manufacturers’ Skills Certification System. This series of exams is related to the four general technology areas of mechatronics as practiced in industrial maintenance, including electrical, mechanical, instrumentation and controls and computer science.

"The new study guides are comprehensive resources designed to help individuals prepare for the mechatronics certificate tests," says Maria Ferrante, vice president, Education & Workforce Development, PMMI. "They were produced in an effort to give certificate candidates a thorough understanding of what skills they are expected to have mastered in order to earn the credential."

"Employers are fast recognizing the value of PMMI’s Mechatronics Certificates as achievement levels of employee qualifications," says Frank Claude, Principal Instructor Robotics & Manufacturing, Dunwoody College of Technology. "Test applicants need to study and prepare for each test. Each test’s specific competencies identify the prerequisite knowledge and skills."

Claude adds that PMMI’s new study guides include sample test questions to more thoroughly prepare test participants for successful completion of the test.

The study guides for Industrial Electricity 1 and Mechanical Components 1 are now available here and cost $25 per guide.
