CLEARFIELD – The North Central WIB and the Clearfield County Career & Technology Center (CCCTC) are partnering to provide hands-on CNC lathe training to manufacturing companies from throughout the north central Pennsylvania region.

Manufacturing companies participating in the North Central Manufacturing Industry Partnership have been asking for hands-on training for their incumbent workforce for several years, and they are now able to get this training at the CCCTC.  The CCCTC recently re-opened their full-time precision machining course in response to demand for machinists from industry.

Along with the full-time course, they are now offering training to the incumbent workforce in the region through the North Central WIB’s Manufacturing Industry Partnership.

There are currently two, different programs available – CNC lathe set-up and operations (24 hours) course and CNC lathe g-code programming, set-up and operations applications course (48 hours). The CNC lathe set-up and operations course is for those with little or no CNC lathe knowledge, while the 48-hour course includes 36 hours of classroom training and 12 hours of CNC lathe application and is for those with previous CNC lathe set-up and operation exposure.

The first session of each course started in April and ended in early May with 14 participants completing the courses.

The second series will begin in June. CNC lathe set-up and operations will begin on June 2 and the CNC lathe g-code programming course will begin on June 16.  Companies interested in participating in these training programs are encouraged to contact Pam Streich or Susie Snelick at 814-773-3162 or pstreich@ncwib.org or ssnelick@ncwib.org.

The CCCTC is currently developing additional training programs, which will be available soon.

For more information regarding additional precision manufacturing programs available at the CCCTC, companies are encouraged to contact Holly Ryan, adult education/marketing coordinator, CCCTC at 814-768-4603 or hryan@ccctc.org.
