Manufacturing Certificate Programs
Current certificates focus on fundamental machining competencies and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) programming and machining. In partnership with H.H. Ellis Technical High School, courses are taught at both the high school and the QVCC Danielson campus.
Future years will expand offerings into Quality Inspectio n, Metrology and Mechatronics (Circuits, PLC Automation and Data Ac quisition). Lean Manufacturing concepts and techniques wi ll be integrated throughout the curriculum.
Basic Manufacturing: Machine Technology Level 1 (16 credits)
Advanced Manufacturing: Machine Technology Level II (18 credits)
Your first step is to Become a QVCC Students by applying to the college.
Machine Technology Level 1 (16 credits)
The objective of this certificate is to expose you to machinery u sed in a current manufacturing environment. Our lab provides hands-on learning with the latest technologies available, along with the n ecessary tooling for projects used in learning basic machining. Successful completion of this certificat e prepares you for the Advanced Manufacturing: Machine Technology Level II credit certificate.
