machinist — a rewarding and challenging trade
with precision and craftsmanship as core attributes.
Machinist Technicians set up and operate precision
equipment for the production of a variety of
components and assemblies. Machinists make or
modify primarily metal components to very fine
tolerances. At 30 weeks in length (900 hours), this
program contains content nearly double that afforded
by the Machinist apprenticeship stream for equivalent
periods. Learn skills including, but not limited to:
machining, machine set-up, blueprint reading, process
planning, design validation, precision measurement,
and heat treatment.
