CNC Machining Pre-Apprenticeship
Area of Study: CNC Machining Pre-Apprenticeship
Degree/Certificate: Short-Term Certificate
The CNC Machining Pre-Apprenticeship program leads to careers in machine tool technologies. It provides a foundation for precision machinist trade principles, conventional machining operations and computer applications of modern manufacturing technology through technical, hands-on training on CNC machines similar to those used to create parts for the auto, aerospace and agriculture industries.
Precision machinists operate metal-removing equipment such as lathes, drill presses, milling machines and grinders, many of which are computer numerically controlled (CNC). Precision machinists may specialize in operating one type of machine, or they may be required to work equally well on several.
- Understand the types of composites and polymers used in manufacturing precision components
- Operate injection molding equipment
- Can apply for formal apprenticeship programs for entry into the trades journeyman pathway
- Develop skills in:
- Shop mathematics
- Blueprint reading and engineer designs
- Machining processes
- Precision layout and measurement
- Organization, communication and teamwork
- Independent problem-solving
- Programming and operating CNC milling and turning centers
- Can safely and efficiently operate:
- Engine lathes
- Drill presses
- Surface grinders
- Horizontal and vertical mills
- CNC machining and turning centers
- Use precision-measuring instruments (micrometers, calipers) to inspect parts for conformance
- Are prepared for entry-level careers as manufacturing technicians or CNC programmers/operators
- Work in machining shops or in manufacturing industries, such as machinery manufacturing or transportation equipment manufacturing
