You can be the next generation manufacturer.
Today’s manufacturer works in a technological environment free from the
grit and grime of the past. According to
the Bureau of Labor Statistics (May 2014 analysis), the national median wage is $19.97 per hour with an annual income of $41,540. New York State represents one of the states
with the high employment rates, high concentration of jobs and high wages for manufacturers. Skilled, high-end manufacturers in NYS can earn in excess of $60,000 annually. The industry includes operations for a turned,

controlled machine). A CNC machine
transforms various materials into exact specifications according to the
This course will provide
all the components needed to seek an entry-level assignment as a manufacturer. The 21st century
manufacturer will need to know the basics of math, computer operation and the
inter-relationship of reading a blue print to the function of the final
product. The classroom will be combined with a lab experience on CNC
machines. The textbook is a software
program in which students will have 24/7 access to learn the art of
machining. Flight simulator technology is
used which shows the student how to operate a CNC machine in a safe, effective
and efficient environment.
This program is approved by the NYS Bureau of Veterans Education.
