What to watch for:
Online Testing for Certifications Through NIMS
), the National Institute for Metalworking Skills, has contracted with Tooling
U to build an online testing site for the NIMS skills certification process.
The site is going into beta testing with a few organizations around the country
in May and will be available for live online testing later in the summer.
A number of companies have told us that they are looking for
cost-effective pre-employment screening tests or knowledge assessments for
their current employees. To help these companies, we are in the process of
developing an online assessment test from our large pool of testing questions.
Stay tuned for this new assessment tool, which will be available separately
from our current training site.
