Computer numerical control (CNC) machinists craft performance parts and components from metal, plastic and other materials. The pieces they create support a wide variety of industries, from automotive and aerospace to medical and manufacturing. In just 36 weeks, students can train to become CNC machinists at NASCAR Technical Institute, which is in the Charlotte area.1 Students also may be prepared with the knowledge needed to test for additional CNC certifications after graduation.6
The CNC Machining Technology program was created in conjunction with Roush Yates, a leading brand in the performance industry. Over the course of 36 weeks, students learn everything from interpreting geometric dimensioning and tolerancing to the setup and operation of CNC mills and lathes.
CNC courses cover a range of topics that will help prepare students for the industry and potentially test for CNC certifications after graduation. Classes include:
