You can be a valuable part of the manufacturing process as a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) programmer—the most technical of the CNC certificate programs. As a programmer, you write the programs that are used to machine parts in CNC lathes and mills. You’ll learn to program in ISO/EIA “G&M” code, proof the programs, set up the machines, and run the programs. To succeed, you’ll need to have an excellent grasp of technology and math, have the ability to think critically, and be an effective communicator. Instruction takes place in our machine shop and students also have assignments to complete outside of class.
