The CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Certificate program enables students to develop skills in programming, set-up, and operation of CNC machine tools to produce precision parts and develop the required skills for entry-level employment.  Students will develop additional skills in process planning, print reading, CAD/CAM, measurement and inspection, and custom work-holding design, leading to NIMS – National Institute of Metalworking Skills and/or other credentials.

The Computer Numerical Control program at NMCC is located in the college’s HAAS Technical Education Center.  The college’s collaborative relationship with HAAS Automation, Inc. affords students access to state-of-the-art machine tools to support training in both entry-level and advanced machining processes.

Job opportunities for graduates include CNC Mill operators, CNC Lathe operator, and quality control inspectors.

The CNC Certificate Program is accredited by the National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS).
