NIMS standards are being touted in the U.S. as a way to standardize the qualifications of machinists. As Director of Training at the National Tooling & Machining Ass'n Training Center, Fremont, CA, I have big problems with them. They are not suited to West Coast manufacturing, but seem to come out of the rust belt. For instance, Horizontal mill is listed as a competency, but you can barely find any on the West Coast. I gave a lot more reservations than this, but I'll leave off here.
