Machining Operations Milling and Turning

Certificate of Proficiency

(8 Semester Credit Hours)

The Certificate of Proficiency in Machinist Operations program prepares students for entry into the manufacturing of mechanical parts.

Students completing a certificate of proficiency in Machinist Operations will be trained in the use of machine tools and Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machines.  In the Machinist OPerations program, students will:

  • Turn, mill, drill, shape, and grind machine parts to specifications
  • Measure, examine, and test completed products for defects
  • Smooth surfaces of parts or products
  • Modify finished work pieces.

In the production of precision metal parts students will use lathes, milling machines, welders, and grinders.  Machining operators work in machine shops, manufacturing, and tool rooms.  Employment projects are based on replacing an aging workforce and potential manufacturing growth in the region.

This certificate of proficiency may be applied to the Technical Certificate in Industrial Electronic Technology and the Associate of Applied Science degree in Industrial Control Systems.
