April 14 ceremony launches new advanced manufacturing program

A public ribbon-cutting ceremony at Live Oaks Career Campus on April 14 will open the CNC Manufacturing lab to the public. The 11:00 am ceremony takes place during Super Service Saturday, the annual community event at the Milford campus.  All are invited; Great Oaks staff will be on hand to answer questions about the program.

CNC Manufacturing, the newest adult workforce development program at Great Oaks Career Campuses will help area adults qualify for careers in precision machining and advanced manufacturing.

Starting in August at the Live Oaks Career Campus in Milford, the program will give students skills and experience in using computer numeric control machines as well as other computerized and automated manufacturing equipment.  The course will run from 4:30-10:30 p.m, Monday through Thursday, from August to June.

Students learn in a fully-equipped manufacturing lab.  Those who complete the program can earn a variety of professional credentials, including National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) certification.

The CNC Manufacturing program is similar to the Precision Machining program offered through Great Oaks at the high school level.  “Our high school Precision Machining students are in high demand from area employers before they even graduate,” said Carol Gittinger, Director of Adult Workforce Development.  “It’s time that adults in the tri-state have those same opportunities.”

The CNC Manufacturing program, like all Great Oaks full-time adult workforce development programs, is accredited by the Council on Occupational Education; students who qualify are eligible for federal financial aid.  For more information, go to adults.greatoaks.com.
