Tech center offers manual and CNC machining programs

Manufacturers nationwide are struggling to find skilled labor, and several community colleges and technical centers around the country have stepped in to fill the void, including a technical training center in Phoenix that offers CNC and manual machining programs.

The Maricopa Skill Center offers two machining certificates: CNC machining and manual machining. Students in the program attend class 6 hours a day, Monday through Thursday. The CNC machining program takes about a year to complete. The cost is approximately $7,331. The manual machining certificate takes about 8½ months to complete and the estimated cost is $5,153.

The CNC certificate provides graduates with NIMS Level-1 certification in safety, CNC mill and CNC lathe operations. Graduates of the manual machining program receive a NIMS Level-1 certification in safety, manual mill and manual lathe.

Working in a hands-on, team approach, students learn to convert raw materials into durable goods. They work mainly with aluminum and learn how to operate lathes and mills, maintain equipment and read blueprints.
