  • Equipment set-up
  • Coordinating work flow
  • Complying with customer requirements

The CPT consists of 70 online training hours.

Candidates earn the portable CPT certification after passing all four production module exams. The CPT is accredited under the only global certification body for manufacturers, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI-ISO 17024).
