Certificate

Coordinator:     Melinda Leland, ADM 101, Ext 2430
Length:              Three semesters (one year)
Note: Program is not accepting new students at this time.

Purpose: The rapid growth of industries in the area and state creates a steady demand for skilled machine tool operators. It is the machinist who is responsible for forming out of various metals the idea that the engineer sends to him in the form of a blueprint. To be able to machine very complex parts using lathes, milling machines, and grinders requires a great deal of skill. Most companies prefer to hire those who already have the basic skills. Also previous instruction reduces training time and should result in more rapid advancement. This program is designed to prepare persons for full time employment as machine tool operators. Furthermore, this certificate will prepare students to be CNC programmers and/or operators.

Occupational Objectives: 
Machine Tool Operator
CNC Programmer or Operator

Admission Requirements: A student eligible for admission to the College can normally be considered for admission to the Computer Numerical Control Machining curriculum.

Program Requirements: The Computer Numerical Control Machining Program is designed to prepare students to work as machine tool operators and CNC programmers or operators. The student will be given training in the operation of metal lathes, milling machines, various types of grinders, drilling machine and measuring instruments. Also the student will develop skills in blueprint reading, mathematics, and drafting.

Students successfully completing the three-semester sequence in this program receive a Certificate in Computer Numerical Control Machining.
