Workplace Certificate

This program provides the foundational technical state-of-the-art skills needed for computer numerical control (CNC) programming. Applied mathematics, CNC programming, problem solving, and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) skills are acquired. The core courses will transfer into the Applied Industrial Technology Associate degree program. This program will provide CNC advancement opportunities and job opportunities as a CNC machinist, CNC programmer, or CNC service representative.

NOTE: Courses listed in the first/third semester will be scheduled for the fall; courses listed in the second/fourth semester will be scheduled for the spring. Students are encouraged to use the curriculum planner to keep track of courses taken and those still needed.
