The fundamental principles and knowledge necessary to operate CNC machines are taught in our state-of-the-art CNC lab, where a blend of classroom and hands-on experience keeps the learning focused on real, practical job skills.  You’ll begin by learning to use basic measuring tools and then move on to reading and interpreting manufacturing-part blueprints. You will learn how to safely and efficiently operate CNC mills and lathes, set tool and fixture offsets and use verified programs to build part projects on CNC machines. Finally, you will be introduced to G and M code programming for 2-axis CNC lathes and 3-axis CNC mills.
