Tooling U-SME maps its online training classes to the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) Standards. These standards provide individuals in the machining and metal-forming industries with a way to validate their knowledge and skills in the trade. To become certified in a specific NIMS standard, individuals must meet performance requirements and pass a series of multiple-choice tests.
For any test, preparation is key. These links match each NIMS test with the Tooling U-SME classes that can increase your knowledge and help you prepare. While our classes cannot guarantee success, our focused content and online tools can get you started in the right direction.
