CNC Machining I

Program Description

The Workshops for Warriors CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Machining I program is designed to prepare veterans, transitioning service members, and other students to become well-rounded entry-level CNC machinists with upward mobility potential.

The curriculum is a combination of machining theory and extensive hands-on training. The duration of the training is 16 weeks or 56-168 hours per course and includes five basic courses: Immerse2Learn, SOLIDWORKS, Mastercam, CNC Mill and CNC Lathe. College credit is not awarded for this program, rather it is designed as a program of study around industry-recognized credentials and skills needed for a career in machining. This program is designed as an accelerated program culminating in nationally-recognized advanced manufacturing credentials.

Program Mission

To provide classroom instruction and hands-on training on state of the art equipment required to develop well-rounded entry-level machinists and CAD/CAM programmers. Students are provided opportunities to earn industry-recognized certifications to prepare them for gainful employment as certified CNC machinists or CAD/CAM programmers.

Program Outcomes

Upon completion of training the student will successfully operate and qualify to all required machining standards in Machining, Measurement, Materials and Safety, Job Planning, Benchwork, Layout Drill Press, CNC Turning, CNC Milling, and CAD/CAM Programming.

Graduation Requirements

To complete this program the student must attend at least 85% of the scheduled hours of instruction and attain at least 80% average on assigned quizzes or tests.

Total Clock Hours

The complete program of three basic courses is 640 hours.

A final exam is administered at the end of the semester.

Internships are not required.

CNC Machining II

Program Description

The CNC Machining II program is designed to prepare veterans, transitioning service members, and other students to become advanced level CNC machinists with upward mobility potential. The curriculum is a combination of a review of machining theory and extensive hands-on training. The duration of the training is 640 hours and can be completed on a regular 32-week schedule or on an accelerated 16-week schedule. The complete program includes 7 basic courses: 5-Axis, CMM, GD&T, Flow Waterjet, Robotics, Laser and 3D Printing. College credit is not awarded for this program, rather it is designed as a program of study around industry recognized credentials based on skills needed for a career in machining. This program is designed as an accelerated program of study culminating in industry recognized advanced manufacturing credentials which test the retention and application of the skills needed for a career in machining. Maximum enrollment per semester is 18 students.
