CNC EMPLOYEE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

CNC Operator PRO
is a structured, online training platform geared towards lower experience level CNC employees & new hires to set them up for success; building knowledge, confidence and a solid foundation. 

Level 1 - Foundational

CNC Operator PRO: Turbocharge your CNC Operator performance while simultaneously preparing participants to move to CNC machine set-up with this online course. An introductory course that provides students with an understanding of the fundamental duties of a machine operator, a basic understanding of what they need to be competent with and includes the G3CNC 10 point “Blueprint for Success”. We discuss maximizing production, in process inspection, organizing their workday, and how to be successful in this role.

CNC Technical Math: Essential math skills required for certification of CNC Operator PRO. An introductory online course that provides students with a basic understanding of blueprints, how to navigate a blueprint, where to find critical information, and how to interpret dimensions, symbols, views & shading.

CNC Blueprint Reading: Essential blueprint reading skills required for certification of CNC Operator PRO. An introductory online course in machine shop mathematics, calculator fundamentals, metric system & conversion, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, percentages, proportions & angles.

"Keep your CNC employees continuously trained in as little as

30 mins per weekOur content is so focused  and is delivered in a way that we recommend employees commit as little as 30-60 mins per week, that's it"!

Level 2 - Intermediate

CNC Set-Up PRO: Online course provides students with an understanding of the fundamental duties of high efficiency machine set-up, an understanding of what they need to be competent with and includes a simplified guide to CNC machine set-up. We discuss maximizing productivity, organizing their workday, and how to be successful in this role.

 

 

Tooling & Materials: Heavy feed low-speed or high-speed low feed? Positive rake or negative rake? Left-handed is on the right and right-handed is on the left? 1 flute 2 flute 3 flute 4. The cutting tool industry is mammoth in size and always growing and technology is always evolving. This online course will make sense of all this madness and help the participants understand the what, when and where with cutting tools. This module also dives into raw materials & their properties as they relate to cutting. Participants learn about ferrous and non-ferrous materials, material identification, and the mechanical and machining properties of commonly used materials. Participants will learn about material specifications and material conditions, such as hardness. Participants will also learn about common cutting tools, configurations, geometries, materials, and coatings.  

Advanced Blueprint Reading: This online course provides a more advanced knowledge of blueprints, interpretation, common acronyms, symbols, thread specifications, material specifications, section views & shading. This course also begins looking at GD&T and preps participants for the full GD&T course.   

Our training content is engineered and delivered using modern learning psychology, leveraging advancements in neuroscience proven to deliver maximum impact and content retention. 

Level 3 - Advanced

CNC Machining PRO: This online course is a deep dive into CNC machining (milling & turning) & the fundamentals of metal cutting. Participants will also be instructed on CNC machining concepts, problem solving, troubleshooting, and critical thinking as it relates to machine operation. Participants will learn to use a logical process for solving problems and troubleshooting CNC machining related issues such as chatter, surface finish, burrs, tool breakage, tool wear and more. 

 

Advanced Tooling & MaterialsThis online course is an advanced discussion on tooling types, tooling geometries, advanced coatings, specialty tools their cutting properties. We will also discuss a range of materials, from Aluminum to Superalloys, what tooling is our best bet in these wide-ranging applications, and how to approach cutting these materials with high levels of stability and success.   

GD&T: Online course on geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) which is a standardized international system based on symbols that can be clearly understood by anyone that is familiar with the standard that is for defining and communicating engineering tolerances. It uses symbolic language on engineering drawings and computer-generated three-dimensional solid models that describe nominal geometry and its allowable variation. It tells the manufacturing staff and machines what degree of accuracy and precision is needed on each controlled feature of the part. GD&T is used to define the nominal (theoretically perfect) geometry of parts and assemblies, to define the allowable variation in form and possible size of individual features, and to define the allowable variation between features. GD&T is a significant improvement over traditional systems for describing dimensions that relate to the fit, form, and function of parts. It is very precise as well as concise relative to these older systems. Each work piece is described in terms of “zones of tolerance” that are relative to the cartesian coordinate system.

Our powerful, secure, online platform allows your employees

to start & and stop the course at an time providing the

ultimate in flexibility for your managers, your employees with

no impact to your production schedule and revenue.

What to Expect: Participants will display a range of positive benefits from this course, including increased initiative, responsibility, and confidence in their work. They will thoroughly understand what is expected of them in their role, take more pride in their work, maintain a clean and orderly workspace, and produce at a higher level.

Minimal Cost: For the price of one drill bit, we will provide your employee with highly effective training, over a period of months, not days, or indefinitely should you choose.

"Built into every session, are special coaching sessions that instill qualities of work ethic from the baby boomer & generation x".

 

No More Drinking from the Firehose: Traditional training has the trainer and trainees in a room for 3.5 hours with the trainer vomiting as much information as possible onto the employees, breaking an hour for lunch, and resuming the vomiting for 3.5 hours. It's horribly ineffective and a waste of time. NO MORE. Following research from modern neuroscience, our content is engineered and delivered for maximum absorption & retention.

 

"Our content is so focused  and it delivered in a way that we recommend employees commit as little as 30-60 mins per week, that's it"!

 

Work Ethic: Built into every session, are special coaching sessions that instill qualities of work ethics from the baby boomer generation. Qualities that encourage personal responsibility, problem solving, ownership and also career guidance and the benefits of making a career in CNC machining.
