Machinist / CNC Operator Certification Training
This 240-hour program is designed to teach students how to interpret blueprints, perform shop math calculations, work with precision measurements and measuring tools, set-up and complete projects on both traditional lathes and mills as well as Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines, perform basic and advanced machining operations, and make decisions to ensure that work quality is maintained.
The curriculum is designed to prepare students for employment in entry-level positions such as machine setup, operation, and programming while providing the fundamental knowledge and skills required to become an expert Machinist. This training also teaches students attention to detail, the ability to work to close tolerances, the skills to improve their mechanical aptitude, and how to solve mechanical challenges by working through logical steps. Shop safety and good shop work practices, including routine machine shop maintenance activities is also covered.
Want to work in the growing field of Fabrication and Machining? Interested in working with metal, wood, and plastics to create finished products? Take a closer look at becoming a Machinist. Our training program and fully- equipped Machine Shop provides students with the funda- mental skills required to become an entry level Machinist. This course covers the essentials of shop math and measuring skills, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, industrial print reading, shop safety, and OSHA-10 General Industry Certification for those who successfully complete this on-line portion of the course. Students in this class will receive practical instruction and plenty of time to practice hands-on skills in turning, milling, and griding using fundamental lathes and mills.
CNC Operator Training
This 120-hour course covers the application of computer numerical control of manufacturing methods. Numerical control and computer numerical control of machining processes are integrated with computer-aided drafting techniques using the latest versions of MasterCAM and Solidworks. Students will learn how to import exchange files from CAD into a CAM program to create tool paths. The tuition for this class covers book and lab fees.
This course teaches how to read, write and understand PLC code. Students will learn the importance of PLCs in today's high speed manufacturing and will also learn how to program and troubleshoot circuits.
