Overview

The CNC Machinist Program is an intensive program designed to prepare qualified individuals for entry into the job market as a CNC Machinist (Computer Numerical Control). Instruction covers programming and basic set up and operation of CNC machines, blueprint reading, shop mathematics, machine tool theory, inspection, surface plate techniques, and Statistical Process Control (SPC). Students will be involved in the production and machining of industry parts.

 

CNC Program Nationally Accredited

Shoreline's CNC Machinist program gets a 4.0 with its accreditation by the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS).

 

"Getting this accreditation is really good news for our students," said SCC's CNC instructor Keith Smith. "With industry using the credentials to recruit, hire and promote machinists, and with few other programs in the state providing the NIMS stamp of approval, Shoreline students are ahead of the game."  More...
