Students must be currently working in a registered apprenticeship program overseen by the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training. The apprenticeship program prepares the student to work as a skilled machinist and earn an Associate of Applied Science degree in Applied Industrial Technology. A four-year apprenticeship emphasizes the skills required to be a highly skilled craftsman. Machinists are involved in the production of components used by the aircraft, automobile, machining and other industries, often using tools run by computer-numerical-control devices. The machinist of today relies on technology to produce parts and must possess a broad skill set that includes mathematical knowledge, technical disciplines, and the ability to work independently. Working from drawings or specifications, using precision measuring instruments, machinists shape metal into usable parts using a variety of precision metal-cutting and grinding machines.
