CNCO 140 - CNC Production Technician

600 hours (non-credit)

Prerequisite(s): Sucessful completion of MACH 110 - Machining Fundamentals  MACH 120 - Manual Mill Operator  and  MACH 130 - Engine Lathe Operator .

CNCO 140 - CNC Production Technician credential program is a NIMS credentialed certificate program. Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive the CNC Milling: Programming Setup & Operations, CNC Turning: Programming Setup & Operations, CNC Milling: Operations, and CNC Turning: Operations credentials. Graduates of the program will be prepared to enter careers as CNC Machine Operators and Manual Machinists. This program is designed to mirror the workplace as closely as possible. All graduates will be required to demonstrate their ability to perform all tasks and skills at workplace ready levels. This program provides extensive hands-on experience performing all tasks identified by industry experts and local employers. Program training includes basic CNC operator skills and CNC set-up processes. Students gain real-world experience using actual CNC machining centers to perform real production runs and job set-ups. Classes are conducted in an actual CNC machine shop environment at the RVCC Campus, equipped with Haas CNC machines, including four virtual machining controls, two CNC 3-Axis Milling Centers, and two CNC 2-Axis Lathe turning centers. The training lab also has two ACER Bridgeport style Mills, two ACER engine lathes, Four ProTraK Manual/CNC combination Mills, two ProTrak Engine/CNC lathe turning centers, two surface grinders, vertical band saw, Optical Comparator, Standard drill press, and other basic machinery.

Coursework covers a variety of relevant areas including; blueprint reading, related math, safety in the workplace, machining technology, tooling applications, work holding, offsets, CNC lathe and mill set-up, gauging and inspection.

In the lab, students will learn to read blueprints and operate state-of-the-art CNC machines, handle precision measurement tools and inspection equipment, and receive an OSHA-10 card.   Students will also program, set-up, edit and operate CNC machining center and lathe.
