Are you ready to advance your skillset in the manufacturing industry? Here is your chance in a flexible, self-paced learning environment. Students can choose one or more of the following offerings:

Computer Numeric Control Mill G&M Code Basic: This course will teach the basics of Computer Numeric Control (CNC) programming for 3-axis mill applications. Students will learn to write CNC programs using G&M code, tool-pathing, canned cycles, and troubleshooting. Course content will reinforce concepts of safety, shop math, and tooling usage. Students will employ these skills in a machine shop environment.

Manual Milling and Holemaking: This course is intended to teach the fundamental principles of hole-making and manual knee mill operations. Students will learn the use of both a drill press and manual mill and will practice skills associated with this equipment in a machine shop environment.

Intro to Tooling: This course will introduce the student to the world of tooling and tool holding as it applies to the machining process. Students will learn to select the appropriate tooling and tool holders for a wide variety of applications. Students will also learn to calculate the correct spindle speed and depth of cut for a selection of cutters and metals. Hands-on exercises will reinforce theory behind speeds, feeds, and tool selection in a machine shop environment.

Training will take place online and in our open-lab environment with guidance from our experienced instructors.
