Machining/CNC Operator

This 400-hour, 5 days a week, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., 10-week program was designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to obtain an entry-level machinist or CNC Operator position in manufacturing. Lecture, labs, and online resources all combine to create an intensive and comprehensive program covering basic programming and operation functions on CNC Machine Tools and Turning Centers. Concepts learned in the classroom are reinforced through the hands-on lab with direct application of learned theories. Real-world manufacturing problems dealing with tooling, process deficiencies, and programming are introduced as a method of reinforcing learning. Students are required to follow all shop safety protocols which are an integral part of the learning. Informational meeting coming soon! For more information on courses and pricing, please contact us at 716.376.7527 or email at LeannaSosnoski-Miller@mail.sunyjcc.edu. Students who successfully complete the program may earn up to 14 SUNY JCC credits.
