Description: The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Machining I introduces the skills and knowledge for application in a modern precision manufacturing work environment. Precision machining involves shaping metals and other materials to close tolerances and customer specification using precision machine tools. Tools such as lathes, milling machines, and others are CNC (Computer Numerical Control) operated. The program combines classroom instruction with hands-on operation of machine tools to produce metal products.
