Machine Tool Technology Program Description

The Machine Tool Technology program has been developed as an employment avenue for students who seek a career in skilled trades. This program provides education and training courses that are usually a part of a formal tool and die maker apprenticeship. A graduate of the program is ready to then complete the on-the-job work experience through his employer that will lead to journeyman status and certification by the U.S. Department of Labor.

Students will be introduced to potential employers over the course of the program, and the student will intern at a local metal-machining company who employs apprentices. On completion of this program, the formal educational and training components of an apprenticeship will be satisfied, with on-the-job training remaining after becoming employed as an apprentice.
