CNC Programming Training

We recognize a huge skills gap in the U.S. due to lack of skilled workers available for the 600,000 jobs that are going unfilled every year. So, we are partnering with Geoff Hillman of Hillman Precision to offer CNC Programming Training to local manufacturers, community members and anyone looking for a new career or brighter future in 2013.

Geoff has more than 35 years of manufacturing and programming experience. He founded Hillman Precision Manufacturing in 1991 and has been a successful CNC manufacturer for more than 20 years.

The first Basic CNC Training Classes have already begun but it’s never to late to sign up!
