Description: The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in CAD/CAM/CNC I introduces the skills needed to translate product sketches and engineering designs into electronic design systems that are the basis for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) that follows. The data from CAD/CAM becomes the machine language to operate the CNC (Computer Numerical Control) systems that produce the machined product on CNC lathes, milling machines, and other manufacturing equipment.
