State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota & PGT Innovations - Certifying the Workforce of Florida for in Demand Manufacturing Careers!

Here is an amazing testimonial from MSSC Center, State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota, sharing their experience of how they partner with industry and also hear the heartwarming success story of CPT certificate, Lazaro Acosta Nunez:

"MSSC Center, State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota has provided the MSSC certification program to over 200 team members over the past 4 years to the Venice campus of PGT Innovations, the nation's leading manufacturer of impact-resistant windows and doors.
Of team members who have completed the program, the company's average retention rate is 84%; this is 18% higher than the company average. All team members who have earned a certificate have also received pay increases and 45% of all participants have received promotions.

While there are many success stories, one that stands out is Lazaro Acosta Nunez. Lazaro joined the
PGT Innovations team five years ago as a technician and did not speak a word of English. He taught himself the language and progressed quickly through the ranks to the level of Line Specialist. When he started the MSSC classes, his eyes opened wide as he was handed his books. He confessed that he had never read a book in English.

Lazaro worked harder than anyone we have ever known and passed the exams with better scores than most of his classmates. Since completing the course, he has moved into the role of Team Leader. The leadership team at PGT Innovations fully expects this amazing growth to continue throughout his career."
