CNC Machining Certificate

cnc machining certification

Jason Topor, CNC graduate

A new breed of manufacturing professionals is needed to lead the way.

Goodwin College’s CNC Machining curriculum will prepare you for a career in an in-demand field. With thousands of unfilled manufacturing jobs in Connecticut, CNC Machining will allow you to pave the path to your future.

We teach you the basic skills industry employers are seeking: problem solving, safety, quality, production processes, machining maintenance, and teamwork. You also develop technical drawing, specification, and mathematical skills, while you learn about material properties and material processing in manufacturing. Combining classroom instruction and hands-on operation of our new CNC 3-axis milling and turning machines, you gain the knowledge and machining experience that is required to be successful in the field.

In this program, you will also gain an in-depth understanding of advanced Mastercam skills needed for programming tool location, motion, and feeds and speeds. Successful completion of this program prepares participants to pursue a National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) credential as a CNC Operator or CNC certification. Credits earned in this program will be applied toward an associate degree in CNC Machining.
