This intense educational package is specifically designed to educate individuals and provide them hands-on training in the following industrial areas; reading and interpreting machine shop symbols, welding blueprints, working drawings used in trades and crafts, shop safety, industrial terminology. They will receive hands-on training and perform lab exercises with general purpose hand tools, machine tooling, measurement and layout equipment, turning, milling, grinding as well as all aspects of Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machine operation and setup methods, production, in-process in-spection, and preventive maintenance methods similar to what the student may experience in the pre-sent day work environment. This will also include the ability to demonstrate correct response to CNC malfunctions and taking appropriate steps to recover the machine as well as interpret CNC programs to determine units of measure, positioning system, tools, spindle speeds, feed rates, canned cycles, cool- ant use, and axis movements.

Our goal is to equip these students with the tools to successfully become National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS) Certified; in the following areas.
Machining Level 1, (Measurement, Materials & Safety)
