      The CNC certificates are designed to develop skills for CNC operators, setup personnel,
      and machinists. These certificates focus on running, setting up, editing, and manual
      programming of CNC mills and lathes. Students will progress from operation skills,
      through choosing and setting up tooling, to manual programming using the advanced
      features of modern CNC equipment.
