The Advanced CNC Programming Certificate develops skills in advanced machining and computer numerical control (CNC) operations. Because of the fast-growing nature of industrial technology, those who have developed skills in CNC operations are always in demand. CNC operators usually enjoy security as well as good wages. This program teaches the student to take metal and cut, drill, and shape it into useful components. CNC opportunities abound, including the following types of positions: machine shop apprentice, tool room machinist apprentice, maintenance machinist, production machine operator, tool and die apprentice, machinery sales and service, and CNC operator. Students may also earn credentials through NIMS.

The Advanced CNC Programming Certificate is accredited by the National Institute for Metal Working Skills (NIMS).
