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

Manufacturing Machine Operation Level 1 Certificate (MMOC1)

The Manufacturing Machine Operation Level 1 Certificate provides foundation skills needed for entry level employment as a computer numerical control (CNC) machine operator in a manufacturing facility. The certificate also prepares students to take certification exams offered by the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS).

Students develop skills including manufacturing machine safety, measurement and blueprint reading, materials and product inspection, and statistical process control. Additionally, students perform machining operations such as drilling, tapping, boring, turning, and conventional milling and lathe work using various manual and CNC machine tools.

Manufacturing Machine Operation Level 2 Certificate (MMOC2)

The Manufacturing Machine Operation Level 2 Certificate provides advanced skills training in programming of computerized numerical control (CNC) equipment, using simulators and live operation of a CNC Machining Center and CNC Lathe. This certificate is designed for machine operators, machinists, programmers, engineers, and supervisors.

Students who complete the Level 2 certificate gain understanding of how to use CNC programs to develop parts in compliance with industry plans, specifications, and standards. Additionally, students inspect and evaluate parts and materials to meet design specifications. The certificate also prepares students to take certification exams offered by the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS).
