Enter the workforce with confidence
Graduates of the CNC Certificate program may find work opportunities as a CNC operator, set-up person or programmer. Students may also advance to supervisory positions, start their own business or branch out to work in positions such as quality assurance inspector, machinist, millwright or tool and die maker.
Ample opportunities exist in oilfield manufacturing, general manufacturing and production and industrial repair shops.
CNC professionals are adept problem solvers, decision makers and time managers. If you enjoy working with your hands and machinery and are prepared to work in noisy and dusty conditions, a career as a CNC professional may be right for you.
