Machinist CP

Program Description:

The machinist Technology Program at the Robert C. Byrd Institute for Advance Flexible Manufacturing (RCBI) is an industry-driven, hands on program that prepared individuals to meet the rigorous demands of the manufacturing sector. An element of the RCBI program enables students to earn a certificate degree in Technical Studies by completing additional course work through Mountwest Community & Technical College.

Participants in the Machinist Technology Program receive technical skills training to work in industrial machining. Course work includes manual machine operation and technical support, introductory CNC (computer-numerical-control) machine operation and technical support, oral communications and organizational skills, mathematics for machinists, and safety issues.

Working closely with an 11-member industry-based advisory board, RCBI designed the program’s core technical components so they met the manufacturing sector’s needs.
Comprehensive full- and part-time programs are available, thus enabling current workforce members to improve their technical skills and develop professionally while helping their employers become more competitive.
