ACMA Academic Partnerships

How the CCT Program Compliments Technical Schools and Colleges


The majority of CCTs are current composites manufacturing employees who sought certification to elevate their professional expertise, gain recognition of their skills and enhance their career opportunities.

However, an increasing number of CCTs are students preparing for careers in the expanding composites industry. For them, the CCT program offers tried and tested training with real-life applications and an opportunity to increase their competitiveness in a challenging job market.

As an academic institution partnering with ACMA, you have the opportunity to supplement your curriculum with ACMA’s study materials, as well as offer your students the opportunity to achieve a nationally recognized credential in addition to gaining college credit. The CCT Academic Partnership Program benefits both schools and their students in several ways:
