EDDIE HUMPHRIESAcademic Program Manager, Machining and CNC Technology
After ten years in the field, Humphries began teaching his trade at night at Central Carolina Technical College. When the program manager position became available, he applied, was selected and fulfilled his lifelong goal of becoming a teacher. “The most rewarding aspect about teaching Machining and CNC Technology is seeing the theoretical light bulb come on and watching students make the connection between consumer goods and manufacturing. To watch students develop their skills and then to succeed by gaining employment is fulfilling,” Humphries says.
The job placement rate for Humphries’ program is currently 100 percent with job opportunities becoming available at a shocking rate. For the last ten years, Machining and CNC Technology at CCTC has been accredited by the National Institute for Metalworking Skills, Inc. (NIMS) which sets skills standards for the industry, certifies individual skills against these standards and accredits training programs that meet NIMS quality requirements.
“Without manufacturing we would not have the goods and services we do today. Without someone to fill those skills positions, those goods and services could cease to exist. Students are primed for a saturated job market in the machining field,” says Humphries.Click Here
