Right Skills Now, created by PMPA Member Darlene Miller that features NIMS credentialing as a means to provide skills assurance to both employers and employees, was featured as a case study in the report.

“Everyone wins with our program.”

“We needed young technical apprentices and couldn’t wait the four or so years while they completed college training. I created Right Skills Now for our own internship program and this is now shared with many SMEs in the region. This is a basic program that takes the kids right out of high school and fast tracks them through internships. the program gives employability assurance to both employer and employee.”
