Gone are the days of the grease-covered, conventional manufacturing machinist. Today’s machinist must be highly trained with very specific education and skills, working in high-tech manufacturing plants that are both clean and innovative. CNC machines, just-in-time production methods, lean manufacturing techniques, along with great housekeeping and state-of-the-art facilities give a more accurate picture of American manufacturing today. The need for properly trained machinists to fill hundreds of positions in North San Diego County has reached critical mass. To meet this need, we are proud to offer this 487-hour program to individuals seeking a fast-paced, high-level training. Our program will prepare students for employment in machine shops and manufacturing facilities. Students who attend will experience an accelerated program that quickly prepares them to meet trade skill sets such as shop mathematics, metal properties, layout, precision measuring, machining procedures, tooling, and a basic understanding of both manual and CNC machining. Salaries for machinist technician apprentices range from $13–$16/hour to start; however, many companies are hiring at $15–$18/hour with proper training and certifications provided by programs such as ours.

Gone are the days of the grease-covered, conventional machinist. Today’s machinist must be highly trained with specific skills, working in high-tech manufacturing plants that are clean and innovative. Our nation is presented with a huge shortage of skilled workers. As 77% of skilled baby boomers leave the workforce, San Diego County will need to fill hundreds of positions over the next 15 years. To meet this need, we offer a fast-paced, high-level training program. Students will be able to complete this program in 13-weeks (487 hours), with training in shop math, metal properties, reading blueprints, precision measuring, tooling, G&M codes, and manual and CNC machining. In addition, students will receive: • OSHA certification • National Career Readiness Certification • Opportunities to attend local NTMA meetings • 2 days of job shadow experience • Industry tours and guest speakers • Resume writing & interview workshop • Work Skill Navigator support throughout the program and after graduation.
