DMG/Mori Seiki USA President, Mark Mohr, and Chief Learning Officer, Rod Jones, accept the NIMS accreditation certificate at the company’s Innovation Days.
At its recent Innovation Days in Chicago, DMG/Mori Seiki USA announced that its training center, DMG/Mori Seiki University (DMSU) is the latest addition to the network of National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS)-accredited training programs. The company is the first machine tool builder to receive such accreditation from NIMS.
This accreditation focuses on CNC machining and machine maintenance, and requires that all trainers gain credentials in a variety of NIMS skills certifications. DMG/Mori Seiki University chief learning officer, Rod Jones, led the accreditation process, along with Doug Pierce, Manager of Educational Operations, and John Roufis, manager of technical instruction.
“Our team found the entire staff, faculty and administration fully committed to expanding NIMS credentialing within their company and affiliated distributors," says NIMS Team Leader Joan Cook. “The facility is state of the art, with exceptional opportunities for the participants to learn—and to ultimately earn NIMS credentials."
Through a balance of on-site, Web-based and classroom training formats, DMSU has established itself as a resource with the ability to transform entry-level machinists into the highly skilled experts that the industry demands. According to Mr. Jones, “We’re delighted to have received the NIMS accreditation, as it proves our dedication to going beyond machine-tool builder—to respected industry educator.”
