HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE MACHINING APPRENTICESHIPS
Registered apprenticeships are successfully addressing the critical manufacturing skills gap.
Established around industry-wide standards, employers can more quickly build a pipeline of skilled workers, boost retention, reduce recruiting costs and improve productivity.
Combining on-the job training (OJT) with related training instruction (RTI) through Tooling U-SME online classes introduces trainees to critical concepts while providing real-world experience — and a paycheck.
Our Apprenticeship Framework for a CNC Machinist apprenticeship outlines industry-endorsed RTI hours needed to meet the requirements of a competency-based or hybrid apprenticeship program. It provides a predefined CNC machining training curriculum that covers job skills, health and safety, foundations in manufacturing, technical expertise for a CNC machinist, and leading and developing people.
Industry-recognized professional certifications can boost careers in machining. These earned credentials validate knowledge, skills, and competencies against industry standards. Machine operators and others can use Tooling U-SME’s effective and convenient online training to prepare not only for our own certification exams that build machining knowledge, but other leading industry certification exams as well. This includes those from Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC), National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS) and SME’s Certified Manufacturing Associate (CMfgA) and Lean Certification.
Manufacturers can save valuable time and money by delivering onboarding machining training where skills are lacking. Uncovering learning gaps and providing targeted manual and CNC machining training can also help employees at more advanced career stages as well. We can help you evaluate competency strength with 50+ redeveloped assessments including machining assessments. We can also customize machining assessments based on your specific needs.
