Calling All Subject Matter Experts
As part of its Smart Training Solutions framework, NIMS has developed an online “Interactive Standards Viewer” (ISV) platform for employers and educators. This platform is a repository of its Smart Standards from which employers can select or build customizable job roles for their on-the-job (OJT) training programs. Educational institutes also benefit from the ISV by having a central repository of industry-recognized job roles to train towards.
Getting valuable feedback from subject matter experts (SMEs) and educators via a quick survey on one or more job roles will ensure that these are agreed-upon, industry recognized standards. Are you an expert in your manufacturing job and all its various duties? Perhaps you are a CNC machine operator, a manufacturing technology instructor, a CAD/CAM programmer, a quality control expert, a maintenance technician, a manufacturing engineer, a press brake operator, and more. If so, NIMS is asking for a few minutes of your time online.
Accessing the survey is easy via NIMS’ website by clicking here to start. Simply choose from the display of Smart Standards which will lead to various job roles within that particular industry or area. Make another click and you will see a list of duties associated with that role. To start the survey, see “Survey Me” in the top right-hand corner of the duty list page. If you have any questions, please call NIMS toll free at (844) 839-6467.
“The purpose of the surveys is to ensure our Smart Standards are aligned to industry and to connect employers and educators,” said Montez King, executive director of NIMS. “It’s a terrific way to give back to industry, plus it’s also satisfying to have a say in this critical issue facing all of us in manufacturing. Everyone’s survey data is kept strictly confidential. Only the location of the organization the SMEs represent will be shared with our network. I, along with everyone in industry, thank you!”
