Spring Semester 2019 Catalog

CNC Specialist, Technical Certificate of Credit

Overview

Offered at the Augusta campus

Entrance Dates: Fall, Spring, and Summer
Length of Program: One to Two Terms
Credit Hours Required for Graduation: 20

Program Description: The CNC Specialist Technical Certificate of Credit program provides training for graduates to gain employment as CNC machine tool technicians. Topics include CNC Fundamentals, mill and lathe manual programming, CNC practical applications, and CAD/CAM programming. The program emphasizes a combination of CNC theory and practical application necessary for successful employment.

Employment Opportunities: Some machinists, often called production machinists, may produce large quantities of one part, especially parts requiring the use of complex operations and great precision. Many modern machine tools are computer numerically controlled (CNC). CNC machines, following a computer program, control the cutting tool speed, change dull tools, and perform all necessary cuts to create a part. Frequently, machinists work with computer control programmers to determine how the automated equipment will cut a part. Some machinists train in CNC programming and write basic programs themselves.
