NEW YORK (PRWEB) June 27, 2018
NIMS (National Institute for Metalworking Skills), the industry leader for training and skills validation in US Metalworking, has announced that it will use pioneering assessment platform Learnosity to power its credentialing tests.
NIMS utilizes competency-based skills standards, credentials, and training frameworks to enable collaboration between educators, policy makers, and community-based organizations in a joint effort to increase the skills of the manufacturing workforce.
“Learnosity is enabling us to advance our online testing platform to the modern, mobile, and dynamic user experience that our customers expect,” said NIMS Executive Director Montez King. “This investment demonstrates our commitment to deliver competency-based tools that empower employers and individuals in the 21st century economy, and we are thrilled to partner with Learnosity to achieve that goal.”
For Learnosity CEO Gavin Cooney, the partnership is indicative of the growing sophistication and influence of competency-based learning programs in the modern economy.
“We’re very excited about working with NIMS,” said Cooney. “Two-thirds of adults in the US don’t have a college degree, so skills-based education offers a fantastic alternative for developing a career without dealing with the costs associated with third-level education. By putting learnosity’s world-class technology at the heart of its offering, NIMS is solidifying its position not only an industry leader in training and skills validation, but as an innovator too.”
