About the Program

Moraine Park’s mold designer training program was developed for people with a background in manufacturing, machining, mold set-up or an associate degree in Mechanical Design Technology. This certificate is also perfect for tool and die maker journey persons interested in moving into a design role in their field.

The Mold Design Certificate at MPTC is designed to help students work cooperatively, work productively, listen effectively, demonstrate a positive attitude, maintain a safe work environment, demonstrate integrity, communicate clearly, follow directions, apply problem solving strategies, apply mathematical reasoning, think critically and adapt to change.
