Associated Programs

The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in CAD/CAM/CNC II program builds on the skills and knowledge developed by the student in the Level I Program. The additional courses are designed to improve the student's understanding of the manufacturing processes employed in a modern manufacturing business to produce the Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) designs into an end product. The focus of these classes is to understand the programming, setup and verification of the manufacturing equipment in producing precision products of different types of material and features.
