Sessions have been scheduled for Thursdays, July 16 and 30, both from 10 a.m. to noon, in the West Building (Room W-120) at the College’s Branchburg Campus. RVCC’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology (Metal-Works fabrication) certificate program is designed to provide fast-track, high skilled manufacturing training in measurement, materials and safety, job planning and bench work, manual milling, manual turning, CNC (Computer Numerical Control) milling, and CNC turning. The 13-month program was designed as a partnership between RVCC and local manufacturing industry employers to address the current shortage of manual machinists and CNC production technicians. RVCC works with employers to place students in jobs upon completion of the certificate. The curriculum is closely aligned with standards set forth by the National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS). Graduates earn a certificate from NIMS that is recognized across the industry. RVCC’s Advanced Manufacturing program is scheduled to begin in September.
