Hands-On, Job-Ready Skills

For employers job-ready skills are critical. Finding qualified CNC machine operators is a challenge for any manufacturing organization. Our CNC Machine Operator Program is the real deal – students can develop and practice the skills required to effectively operate a CNC machine.They learn by doing. CNC machine operators must have a wide array of skills to be effective in their jobs.

CNC machine operators must have a wide array of skills to be effective in their jobs. RSDC’s CNC Machine Operator Program teaches operators hands-on skills in the following areas:

  • Performing part measurement and gauging
  • Interfacing with a CNC
  • Making tooling decisions
  • Responding to machine malfunctions
  • Setting-up and operating a CNC machine

RSDC’s CNC Machining Operating programs are designed to put you on track for a rewarding career in this in-demand field.

CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) Operator Certificate Programs

CNC stands for computer numerical control. It is a versatile system that allows you to control the motion of tools and parts through computer programs that use numeric data. CNC can be used with nearly any traditional machine. The most common CNC machines found in the machine shop include machining centers (mills) and turning centers (lathes).   These classes will explain operations performed with the help of CNC. The content is for individuals who need to understand what CNC is and how it works. Content covers the basic machines as well as programming for the more experienced user.

Theoretical & Practical courses available, including:

  •     Basic and Advanced Turning
  •     Basic and Advanced Milling
  •     CAD CAM

The two most popular forms of metal-cutting CNC machine tools include:

  • CNC machining centres, which machine a stationary work piece with a rotating cutting tool
  • CNC turning centres, which machine a rotating work piece with a stationary cutting tool.

This course focuses on turning centres. Note that a similar course is available for machining centres. Participants will learn how to program CNC turning centres in four lessons. The more you know about basic machining practices as they apply to turning operations, the easier it will be to learn to program a CNC turning centre. We emphasize manual programming (G code Level) techniques. It is with this style of CNC programming that you can be the most intimate with the CNC machine tool, commanding everything the machine will do from within your program. And a thorough understanding of manual programming is prerequisite for mastering any computer aided manufacturing (CAM) system.

In a manufacturing environment where machines do much of the labor, the human touch is needed to ensure consistent productivity and high quality of goods. Computer numerical controlled (CNC) equipment operators handle the initial startup of a program, maintain quality control of the parts being machined and troubleshoot CNC machine tools when necessary.
CNC operators use CNC machinery to create machine parts and other precision products. Individuals looking for employment as CNC operators can learn their craft through CNC operator certificate programs. CNC operator certificate programs include instruction in methods for setting up, programming and operating CNC machinery. CNC Machine Operators require skills in operating a CNC machine but are not machinists. Through industry task analysis as well as strong involvement with our development partner, CNC Machine Operator Program brings a highly focused, streamlined set of skills to CNC Machine Operator training. Many training programs for CNC Machine Operators use training really designed for machinists, which incorporates a lot of theory not relevant to the role of CNC Machine Operator. For example, a CNC machine operator needs to know how to run a CNC program – not how to design one.

RSDC’s CNC Machine Operator Program focuses exclusively on the modern CNC machine operator, including such tasks as maintaining machines and recording SPC (Statistical Process Control) data. It covers all the skills operators need, from operating the CNC machine to set-up of tooling and fixtures to quality inspection.

VMC (Vertical Machining Centers)

A vertical machining center (VMC) is a machining center with its spindle in a vertical orientation. High-end VMCs are high-precision machines often used for tight-tolerance milling, such as fine die and mold work. Low-cost vertical machining centers are among the most basic CNC machine tools. vertical machining centers are designed to provide stiffness and rigidity for chatter-free cutting, agility for high-speed/hard-milling and accuracies for tight-tolerance blends and matches typical of complex, 3-D contoured geometry associated with die/mold and medical production. VMC delivers precision, accuracy and excellent stability for the machining of complex materials, including ceramics, intricate cores and cavities.

RSDC's CNC Set-Up/Operator Certificate is designed for individuals who have limited or no manufactuirng background in the setup and operation of CNC equipment. This certificate covers how to perform:

  • Operation of machine tools
  • Computer operations
  • Entry-level CNC programming
  • CNC setup
  • CNC operation
  • Industrial trades math
  • Blueprint reading
  • Use of precision measuring equipment


A certificate will be issued to students who successfully complete the three levels of Operations and/or the three levels of Programming within each certificate. Our leading-edge equipment provides an excellent opportunity to get hands-on training as an operator and programmer.

There are two streams based on the machines (Machining Centre and Turning Centre) available for the CNC Certificate:

  • CNC Machining Centre Operator Certificate  I
  • CNC Machining Centre Programming Certificate  II
  • CNC Turning Centre Operator Certificate I
  • CNC Turning Centre Programming Certificate II

You may choose to earn all four certificates.

Program Model / Completion Requirements

In your chosen machine type, it is suggested that you register for all three core courses at the same time. Students completing one level will not be guaranteed placement at the next level.

Students with previous experience who wish to enter a higher-level CNC course, without completing previous levels, will be required to demonstrate CNC skills and competencies prior to registration. Contact program area for the required forms.  Students registering in CNC courses are accepted on a “first come - first served” basis.

Note: Students must take courses in the prerequisite sequence.

Program Description

As a student of Mechanical Techniques - CNC Programming, you’ll benefit from a curriculum built on hands-on learning. You’ll spend a large portion of your time working in a practical setting, becoming proficient in metal machining operations and planning procedures, with emphasis on practical machining techniques. You'll be introduced to modern manufacturing processes including Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Programming, Computer Assisted Drafting (CAD) and Computer Assisted Manufacturing (CAM) software. This computer training will enhance your ability to set up and produce pieces in accordance with engineering drawing specifications.

Your Career

There is a critical need for skilled Computer Numerical Control (CNC) programmers and operators in industries. After successfully completing this course, Students may find work opportunities as a CNC operator, set-up person or programmer.
