Today’s manufacturer works in a technological environment free from the grit and grime of the past. The industry includes operations for a turned, molded or metalworking product; aerospace products and parts; automotive and locomotive products and parts; and much more. The manufacturer of today will use a CNC machine (computer numerically controlled machine). A CNC machine transforms various materials into exact specifications according to the blueprint.

This course will provide all the components needed to seek an entry-level assignment as a manufacturer. The 21 st 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.

Class size is limited to 10.

In order to be considered enrolled, tuition must be paid in full at the time of registration or sponsorship from an agency must be established.
