Are you looking for job security and higher wages? If so, you may want to consider a career in precision manufacturing and machining technology, and the training program at MCC may be the place to start.
“We are currently enrolling students. We’ve opened up a few more spots than we usually have. Classes start August 22nd. It’s not too late to register, and you can still register up until after
classes have started by special permission,” said Brian Warren, the program’s coordinator.
He explained that job options are soaring, since knowing how to operate CNC machines is in high demand.
“Right now the biggest problem we have is we’re out of graduates, and people are still calling looking to hire people.”
CNC machines are used to make medical instruments, firearms, automotive tools, and more. MCC students used one to make a metal chessboard that’s displayed in Reed Hall.
After completing the program, graduates typically enter into high paying jobs, making on average a starting pay of $22.17 per hour.
Warren said the program can be completed in one two years with advanced training options available.
