This technical certificate encompasses four essential core courses in
the Mechanical Design & Fabrication AAS degree. The Computerized
Woodworking Certificate reflects the culmination of those learned
skills and proficiencies for a student to set-up and operate the CNC
machinery used in non-metal fabrication at the entry level. The core
courses provide training on various woodworking equipments and
on a CNC gantry mill router.
Completion of the requirements for this certificate provides a head start in this technical field as a CNC operator. There are many employment opportunities in the local and regional area in this field. While working on these core courses, an individual may also choose to co-op to gain valuable working experiences while learning. Additionally, a solid foundation for the companion two-year AAS degree in Mechanical Design & Fabrication is being built. In short, this technical certificate can be completed in one semester allowing one to start a new career rapidly. The four courses that comprise the Computerized Woodworking Technical Certificate are all applicable to the Mechanical Design & Fabrication two year AAS degree. Other skills learned in this certificate program are graphic arts as applied to sign making, MasterCam Art to generate 3-D designs for the CNC router and computer drafting with AutoCAD. The goal of this certificate program is to certify current technology entry level skills in the machining and fabrication industry in non-metal fabrications.
