Fall semester begins, Monday, August 20, 2018

Classes for this program are located in Rathdrum, Idaho, 12 miles from Coeur d’Alene at the Parker Technical Education Center

The Machining and CNC Technology program prepares students for entry-level employment in the machining and manufacturing industries. The curriculum features basic to advanced machining concepts involving various machine tools such as conventional lathes, mills, grinders, and their Computer Numerical Control (CNC) counterparts. Coursework also involves blueprint reading, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, shop math, and statistical and mechanical measurements. The second year of the program places emphasis in CNC and CAD/CAM systems and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing in preparation for employment in computerized manufacturing processes. Opportunity to certify in MasterCAM Mill is available to students who successfully complete the program.

Successful completion of each semester or permission of the instructor is required to continue into the next semester. Prospective students should have solid math skills and demonstrate mechanical aptitude. Computer and keyboarding skills are recommended. Placement in specific English and Math classes is determined by the college assessment test. Prospective students who do not meet the initial eligibility requirements for a professional-technical limited-enrollment program will need to take selected course to receive necessary skill-building prior to entering the program (see page 43 of the catalog).

Current industry professionals may enroll in individual courses on a space-available basis and with the instructor's permission.
