Graduates of the CNC Manufacturing certificates will be equipped with industry knowledge and skills to work as entry level CNC Machinists and Operators. CNC Machinists and Operators setup and operate a variety of computer-controlled or mechanically-controlled machine tools to produce precision parts, instruments, and tools. They work in machine shops, tool rooms, and on factory floors.
The program is divided into two separate certificates: Intro to CNC Manufacturing and CNC Manufacturing in order to allow flexibility for employment opportunities.
Completion of the Intro to CNC Manufacturing certificate is a prerequisite for CNC Manufacturing certificate, and students are strongly encouraged to complete both certificates.
CNC Manufacturing is also part of the Accelerating Opportunity I-CAPS initiative targeted for students who also participate in an additional required support class.
