CNC Programmer (NDP.CNCP)

The CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Programmer certificate program is designed to provide students with the skills necessary to gain entry level employment in the metal working or wood working industry. It is recommended that students complete the CNC Operator certificate before enrolling in the CNC programmer certificate program. Students learn: blueprint reading, Computer Aided Drafting, shop mathematics, machine tool theory, inspection, quality control and CNC programming using state of the art equipment. Career opportunities may include entry-level CNC programmer or operator. Upon completion, students also receive industry recognized certificates in Fanuc CNC Mill and Turn Programming and OSHA 10 hour Safety.

Program requirements may change over time. Specific degree/graduation requirements are determined by a degree audit.
