Manufacturing Machine Operation Certificates, Levels 1 and 2 (MMOC1, MMOC2)

Manufacturing Machine Operation Level 1 and Level 2 Certificates (MMOC1 and MMOC2)

The Manufacturing Machine Operator Level 1 Certificate provides knowledge and skills required for entry level employment as a computer numerical control (CNC) machine operator in a manufacturing facility. Students learn to operate manual milling machines, lathes, and grinders and produce parts that meet tolerances specified on plans.

The Manufacturing Machine Operator Level 2 Certificate provides advanced training in part design, machine layout, and programming.

Graduates of both certificate programs are prepared to take certification tests offered by the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS).
