This series of courses introduces you to the use of Mastercam software by machinists, engineers and users of CNC in various lathe or milling operations.

We will discuss 2-dimensional geometry and criteria for selecting tools and creating different kinds of toolpaths for CNC turning centres or CNC machining centres.

Knowledge and experience in Mastercam software will help you more quickly produce machine parts through high-speed machining on several axes at once. Mastercam machining is easier to use, more accurate and more specialized than manual or CNC machining. 

By learning the intricacies of Mastercam, you will be able to increase productivity and quality assurance, making you a more highly sought-after employee.   

A NAIT Mastercam Certificate will be issued upon successful completion of MACH615, MACH620, MACH625 and MACH630.                                      

Upon completion of one or more of these courses, you will have new skills to apply on the job and professional development credentials to enhance your overall employability. 

If you are a CNC operator looking to advance your career, these courses can help you reach your goals. They could also help you shift your career path with CAD/CAM or as a CNC programmer or manufacturer designer.

NAIT offers specialized Mastercam courses related to mill, drill, router and axis operations. If you are a CNC operator, you may need some or all of these courses to meet the demands of your employment or to hone in on 1 or 2 areas of interest.
