Hours: 2
An introduction to the fundamental skills required in the machining industry. Skill topics include: safety, bench work, measuring devices, basic machinery and their functions including: drill presses, horizontal mills, engine lathes, and common cutting tools. The overarching goal of this course is to afford the student the opportunity to earn NIMS credentials, (The National Institute for Metal Working Skills) as they demonstrate their competency with the tools and procedures used in the industry. NIMS credentials certify to employers that the holder is qualified to work in the industry. In this course students can earn two NIMS credentials. The first is Measurement, Materials, and Safety Job. The second is Planning, Bench Work, and Layout. Students may earn a NIMS credential in this course; both a practical and theory test must be mastered to receive the credential.
