What is the program about?

This certificate is designed to enhance the machining skills of students who have taken machining courses in high school or to allow individuals with little or no experience in machining to quickly obtain a certificate that may in turn qualify them for an entry-level position in a machining company. Coursework is focused on introductory levels of manual machining and the basic operation of CNC machines. This is the first half of the Computer Numerical Control Technology short-term certificate and will provide students with a milestone of completion and the ability to continue their education up to and including a two-year Associate of Applied Science degree in CNC operations.

Program Outcomes

  • Identify and Demonstrate a fundamental competency within the areas of manual machining, CNC machining, quality, robotics, Maintenance, mechanical and electrical skills
  • Demonstrate the necessary skills required for most basic manufacturing areas.
  • Demonstrate a basic knowledge of safety found in all areas of the manufacturing industry.
  • Demonstrate the proper use and knowledge of computers and software applications used widely within the manufacturing industry for reporting and documentation.

Career Opportunities

Basic Manufacturing prepares the student for entry level positions in any of the five areas within General Manufacturing, Computer Aided Manufacturing, Automation Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology, and Industrial & Systems Engineering Technology. Completion of this certificate prepares the student to earn the Industry Recognized MSSC - Certified Production Technician Certificate.


This certificate prepares the student for the ODHE and IRC - MSSC - CPT certification.
