Program Certifications

National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) - Certification for the Automotive Technology Management Program

Central Missouri's automotive program uses the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation's (NATEF) End of Program Evaluation exams to assess all students in their senior year. The results from this series of exams are used to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of UCM's automotive program. This evaluation is designed to measure each student’s knowledge of course content and learning outcomes within an automobile technician training program. Comprised of a combination of theory and application-based questions, the test is divided into the eight automobile areas and was developed using the NATEF task list. Schools choose which and how many sections in which to test the students. 

American Institute of Constructors (AIC) - Certification for the Construction Management Program

In an effort to recognize the many skills required by the construction professional today, each construction management senior is required to register for and take the Associate Constructor (AC) certification exam administered by the American Institute of Constructors (AIC).

Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) - Certification for the Technology Program

Professional certification is available to senior students and graduates of the Technology program through the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) and the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering.SME Logo  Both organizations offer certification through examinations that are appropriate for the program’s graduates.  SME provides an examination that leads to certifications as a Certified Manufacturing Technologist (CMfgT).  ATMAE offers an examination that qualifies students for credentials as a Certified Technology Manager (CTM).  Both of these professional societies have continuing education requirements that must be met in order to maintain active certification status.  Feedback from certification examination results is one important source of input for the departmental faculty to use in the assessment of program outcomes.
