Manufacturing affects many industries that drive our local economy and this hands-on field has high demand for qualified technicians as the new technology evolves.

NEW TRAINING PROGRAM Anyone interested becoming a Computerized Numerical Control (CNC) machinist can learn the technology on this machine during a training course to be offered at the PJC-Sulphur Springs Center from April 3 through April 14. The technology is used in industry to make all types of objects out of metal and wood.

Computerized Numerical Control (CNC) machinists literally build things from scratch using computer-enhanced machines — and now the PJC-Sulphur Springs Center is offering a course covering the basics with CNC machine training.

CNC machine training offers the chance to gain job-ready abilities by becoming skilled at working with computer numerical control (CNC) machine technologies. The technology is used to make tools, dies, molds, and other objects using high-tech lathes or milling equipment.

CNC techs produce a wide range of manufactured goods and work with a full line of raw materials – plastics, wood, metal and more. This skilled trades career calls for sophisticated programming skills to bring products from concept design to reality: from a piece of titanium, for example, to an artificial hip; from a piece of steel for gears for cars, trucks and airplanes; from a piece of wood to parts for new home construction.

This continuing education course will be offered from 6 to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday, April 3 through April14.

For more information call the PJC-Sulphur Springs Center at 903-885-1232 or go by the campus, located at 1137 Loop 301 East.
