Precision Machining Technology I 8539 Grade Level: 10 or 11 Precision Machining Technology II 8540 Grade Level: 11 or 12 Prerequisite: PMT I Precision Machining Technology III 8541 Grade Level: 12 Prerequisite: PMT II Students learn the basics of industrial safety and environmental protection; planning, management, and performance of machining jobs; quality control; process improvement; general maintenance; engineering drawings and sketches; and application of measurements, metalworking theory, properties of materials, and principles of CNC. Precision Machining Technology programs may be certified by NTMA (National Tooling and Machining Association), the certifying agency for the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS). See Precision Machining Technology Framework for additional information. Available upon completion of Precision Machining Technology sequence: Machining Skills Level 1—Drill Press (NIMS) Machining Skills Level 1—Milling Machine (NIMS) Machining Skills Level 1—Measurements, Materials, and Safety (NIMS) Precision Machining (NOCTI) Credential Title/Description/Entity How to Earn Credential Implementation Data Possible Preparatory Courses/Career Cluster Precision Machining Pass the NOCTI knowledge-based exam, During 2004 through 2006, 24 Virginia Precision Machining Occupational competency assessment of skills and Precision Machining (2052), with 173 test students have taken this assessment with Technology 8539/8540/8541 knowledge covered in a secondary level program in items. Test includes organization and shop 2 scoring at or above the national norm. precision machining practices, measurement and inspection, shop math, interpretation of blueprints, 2006: 21 Virginia students took the Manufacturing design activities, benchwork, precision assessment with 2 scoring at or above the National Occupational Competency Testing Institute grinding machines, lathes, power saws, national norm. (NOCTI) milling, cutting tool technology, drill presses, electro-discharge machines (EDM), National Norm: 60.5 computer numerical control (CNC), Virginia Norm: 50.0 machine maintenance, metallurgical processes and heat treating, and application of technical information. Machining Skills—Level 1 Each of seven credentials that can be earned Precision Machining Certification of essential knowledge and skills for entry- requires successful completion of a Technology 8539/8540/8541 level machinists in any one of seven distinct Machining performance requirement and a related No students were reported as having Level 1 skill areas theory exam. Each credential involves a passed at least one Machining (Level I) different written exam with the exception of exam in 2005-06. Manufacturing Turning; the Turning exam needs to be National Institute for Metalworking Skills, Inc. (NIMS) taken only once for both Turning 27 CTE teachers have achieved one or credentials. In summary, there are seven more Machining Skills Level I performance requirements and six written certifications exams at Machining Level One. For student-selected verified credit, pass any one Machining (Level 1) examination with performance component.
