B – Degree Programs
Computer Numeric Controlled (CNC)Machining
MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGIES – CERTIFICATE OF ACHIEVEMENT
The CNC machining certificate of achievement provides
students with the skills and knowledge required for an
entry level position as a computer numerical control
(CNC) machine tool operator. This certificate stresses
the skill sets required to set up, program, and operate
CNC mills and lathes in order to produce high quality,
precision machined components required by today’s
competitive and diverse manufacturing industries. The
certificate incorporates the general education skills that
are strongly requested by commercial and industrial
employers. The TMCC CNC machining certificate of
achievement curriculum aligns with the standards set
forth by the National Institute for Metalworking Skills
(NIMS) and prepares students to earn a variety of NIMS
credentials.
CERTIFICATE OUTCOMES
Students completing the certificate will:
• Read and interpret technical prints for the production and
inspection of manufactured work pieces.
• Produce precision machined work pieces within print specifications
on computer numerical controlled (CNC) machine tools.
