The Computerized Numerical Control (CNC) program, accredited by the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS), utilizes computer software to design, program, set up, and operate, as well as maintain the machines that produce industrial and precision metal parts. The theory portion of the program begins with blueprint reading and contextualized math applications. It then progresses to Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM). Practical hands-on experience is gained through training in CNC operations, setup, and programming. Trainees receive the most up-to-date information in manufacturing through the CNC program’s online learning system, Tooling U, and through training by NIMS and MSSC (Manufacturing Skills Standards Council) credentialed instructors. Trainees in the CNC program are also prepared for NIMS and MSSC credentialing, giving our trainees a competitive edge in employability.
The Electric/Electronic Industrial Maintenance (EEIM) program trains individuals for jobs in the areas of electrical wiring and electronics, with an emphasis on motors, industrial controls, instrumentation, and programmable logic controllers, as well as in the field of machine maintenance. Trainees receive the most up-to-date information in the industry through Tooling U, a nationally recognized and utilized online learning system, and thorough training by industry credentialed instructors. Trainees in the EEIM program are also prepared for credentialing through MSSC, giving our trainees an edge in employability. Those individuals with more than two years of relevant work experience can also use the training in this program to prepare for the state electrical licensing exam.
Both the CNC and EEIM programs are cohort-based programs that begin in late August every year. They are offered in the daytime, Mondays through Fridays, and in the evening, Mondays through Thursdays.
