The CNC certificate is designed for people with a machinist background who desire to learn about the basic operations of CNC (computerized numerical controlled) machinery.
Good math and blueprint reading skills are essential for those who would like to study CNC programming. This certificate requires students to write simple CNC programs using the G and M codes to define tool paths and other CNC functions. The student will then program and operate CNC machines. The graduate will have a good working knowledge of CNC and the jobs associated with this type of work.

Setup and safely operate all machine tools required for project completion.
Maintain the personal discipline to complete projects on time.
Use technology in machine shop related to on the job requirements.
Use applicable tooling correctly during various machining operations.
Designed for someone with an MTT degree or diploma, or 4+ years MTT work experience.
Best start time for CNC certificate is summer semester.
It is very important for students to connect with Bob Koster or Johnny Merck during the initial enrollment process. If registering at a county center, have student call Bob Koster or Johnny Merck.
Courses are offered during day and evening hours.
