Accelerated CNC training program for military and civilians
The Vincennes University Right Skills Now – CNC Machining program is designed to prepare veterans and civilian adult learners to become well-rounded entry level CNC machinists with upward mobility potential. The curriculum is a combination of machining theory, 25%, and extensive hands-on training, 75%. The duration of the training is 15 weeks at 8 hours per day, 5 days per week, for a total of 600 hours. Four college credits are awarded for successfully completing the training and each of the 6 required NIMS credentials, for a total of 24 credit hours. A Certificate of Graduation may be earned by also taking an applied math I class and an interpersonal communication class. The VUHTEC CNC lab contains 13 industrial size Haas CNC machines plus an array of supporting manual machines and metrology equipment.
As a VA approved program, veterans can apply their benefits towards tuition and supplies, and in some cases living expenses. Candidates must have a high school diploma, or a GED, take TABE and WorkKeys assessments from WorkOne, and ideally, are interviewed by a potential employer from their geographical area prior to the training. The training can be tailored somewhat to meet the needs of a specific company, and students are placed immediately into CNC machine setup and operation positions. Classes run January through April, May through August, and September through December. Temporary housing is avaiable.
