PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, has released two study guides to accompany PMMI’s Mechatronics Certificate tests - Industrial Electricity 1 and Mechanical Components 1.

PMMI says these tests will help manufacturers assess the capabilities of current employees and identify levels of competency for new candidates.

"The new study guides are comprehensive resources designed to help individuals prepare for the mechatronics certificate tests," says Maria Ferrante, vice president, education and 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."

The PMMI Mechatronics Certificates are recognized by the US 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.
