Desert View Tucson Magnet High Schools and Pima Community College Receive NIMS Accreditation

On January 11, 2017 SAMP members, students and teachers celebrated Desert View and Tucson Magnet High Schools and Pima Community College (PCC) receiving National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) accreditation for their Machining Programs.  

NIMS accreditation means that the curriculum students are taught meet national standards. NIMS sets skills standards for the industry, certifies individual skills against the standards and accredits training programs that meet NIMS quality requirements.  

This achievement wouldn't have been possible without the dedication of SAMP members and instructors Ray Wiggins and Chris Williams from Tucson Magnet and Cesar Gutierrez from Desert View High Schools, and Greg Wilson from PCC.
