NIMS is proud to announce that it awarded a record number of credentials last year to individuals seeking to enter into or advance in manufacturing jobs. In 2015, NIMS issued 21,420 industry-recognized credentials, with 18,901 of them issued in the United States. As a result, NIMS' U.S. credentialing increased by 20% from 2014. The growth in credentialing is in part due to the support and hard work of NIMS' partner schools and businesses promoting NIMS to their students, colleagues and networks.
