The Advance Machining Operator Certificate program provides a foundational knowledge in manufacturing and machining operations, print reading, CNC, industrial safety, 5S, Lean manufacturing, quality control, and Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) with an emphasis on preventative maintenance. Students learn the foundational theory and practical understanding of manufacturing with machining operations through lectures and intensive hands-on lab activities with real industry equipment. The program can be completed in one semester and integrates numerous third-party credentials such as First Aid, CPR, AED, Forklift, Personal Protective Equipment, Test Meters, and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers Certified Manufacturing Associate (CMfgA).
The program also serves as a Department of Labor approved Pre-Apprenticeship Program. Graduates have the option of completing the Computer-Integrated Machining and CNC Programming Certificate in the following Spring semester, with just a few additional courses.
