  • Create Your Future With Our CNC Machining Technology Program



Ever wonder how that pen in your hand came into existence? Or how about those shiny rims on your ride? Maybe even the lifesaving ventilators at hospitals? The answer is CNC machining.

This superstar technology zips through creating parts and components like a hot knife through butter! With speed and accuracy that leaves manual methods in the dust, CNC machining is the unknown art of our everyday lives. And companies are in need of skilled CNC machinists to help make their businesses thrive!

Learn how to make magic with metal with the help of NASCAR Technical Institute’s CNC Machining Technology program in Mooresville, North Carolina!1

What helps set our career-specific training programs apart are our employer relationships within the industry, hands-on courses with tools and technology used in the field, and passionate instructors with real-world experience who want to see you succeed.

Courtney Silver, president and owner of Ketchie, Inc., highlights the advantages of a comprehensive program like NASCAR Tech. "You get familiar with the whole industry. You have machines there that you get to be hands-on with. You also have classroom time where you’re learning programming about part design, tolerances…” she says.

Ryan Tabor, a proud graduate of NASCAR Tech, echoes this sentiment, "Going to NASCAR Tech I was able to learn hands-on the skill that I was going to be doing in my career."

At NASCAR Tech, it's not just about the machines — it's about the people behind them. Tim Bowmaster, an instructor at NASCAR Tech, shares his passion for teaching. “My favorite part of being an instructor is teaching students and people how to do this trade, what to use and how the tools are used properly.”

The instructors at NASCAR Tech aren't just teachers; they're mentors and friends. “I had good instructors. They’re nice, they’re interested in your personal lives, you can relate to them. They also have a lot of similar interests in what you are learning,” shares Ryan Tabor.

One of the key strengths of the NASCAR Tech program is its strong relationships with the industry. Todd English, vice president of marketing and strategic partnerships at Roush Yates Manufacturing Solutions, explains how this relationship has positively impacted their business. “We've hired over 30 graduates in the last 2-3 years. We work with instructors, we work with the facility, we actually provide parts and pieces for those potential machinists to actually go through and machine...”

For our graduates, like Ryan Tabor, NASCAR Tech was a stepping stone to a life he always wanted. “I found a career instead of just a job. I am able to grow here which I have from being a laser operator to CNC operator now into manufacturing engineering and programming,” he says.6

CNC machining is more than a job — it’s a passion. One that is best summed up by NASCAR Tech graduate Carlos Ramos. “What I enjoy the most about my job is getting to make something out of nothing. All these parts start out as just blocks and within a day you have the mold to make a part that’s gonna go on a race car or something along those lines,” he shares.

So next time you pick up that pen, spare a thought for the cool tech that made it possible. That tech could be you! Enroll today in our CNC machinist program or reach out to an admissions representative to learn more.
