Basic Machining Class Begins in March at Sandhills

The Advanced Manufacturing Program at Sandhills Community College offers high-tech, in-demand career training through state-of-the-art equipment designed to meet the growing demand for skilled workers. Through partnerships with local employers, this program aligns class offerings and curriculums to provide employers a pipeline of skilled workers with job-specific skills. These programs do not take an extended period of time to complete and many students have employment lined up prior to graduation. We even offer job placement assistance and career coaching.

“Basic Machining” is designed to meet entry-level requirements for on-the-job skills. The class instructs students on the operation of drill presses, metal-cutting saws, lathes, milling machines, and grinders.  Students will also produce precision parts utilizing appropriate speeds, feeds, and tooling.  Successful students qualify to enroll in the Machining II – CNC Operations Mill & Lathe.

“Basic Machining” will be held on Monday and Wednesday evenings, March 25-Sept. 11 from 6-9 p.m. The cost is $185 plus $75 for materials and the cost of the text.

Seats are still available for this class. To register in person, stop by the Sandhills Community College Continuing Education office located on the first floor of Van Dusen Hall. You can also register by phone with a credit card at (910) 695-3980. Registration hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Fridays 8 a.m. until noon.
