The AMBA created the AMBA-certified Skills Certification Program to assess and certify the skills of front-line mold manufacturing workers, from entry-level through the first level of supervision within all sectors of the industry.

The purpose of the program is to recognize, through certification, individuals who demonstrate mastery in three body-of-knowledge content areas: 

  • Primary Skills

  • Master CNC Technician

  • Master Mold Builder

Although passing the AMBA Skills Certification is not an easy task, many mold builders and CNC technicians in the AMBA member community have passed the tests and are displaying their credentials with pride. 

Designed through a scientific, strategic process, Dr. Katherine Manley led a group of mold building professions from across the country, with demographics ranging from large to small operations in all sectors of the industry. Weeks, months and years went into devising the tests and skills standards. Each test was piloted by over 35 AMBA member companies, revised and then launched.
