Prepare to help meet the demand for highly skilled employees in manufacturing – from welding classes to machine shop training to CNC machine instruction.

Programs in Machine Tool, CNC Machine, Welding & More

In today’s manufacturing industry, highly skilled employees such as machinists, CNC machine operators, tool and die operators, welders and engineering technicians are in short supply.

In fact, students who graduate with our Machine Tool Operation and Machine Tool/CNC Technician technical diplomas find up to 10 job openings for every grad.

NWTC’s Manufacturing programs prepare students for success in today’s workforce. Several programs had 100% of their 2012-13 graduates employed in their field six months after graduation.

One way we help you succeed is our Manufacturing Technology Center, where you'll do more than learn about these jobs. You’ll get hands-on experience with our state-of-the-art equipment from the industry – the same tools area employers use.

Plus, our mobile CNC training lab can deliver high-tech training on computer-aided design (CAD) to high schools, job centers and more. The Computer Integrated Manufacturing Mobile Lab is packed with technology including:

  • Haas CNC lathe
  • Haas CNC mill
  • 13 computers
  • SMART board (an interactive whiteboard)
