CIP Code: 48.0501

Instructor: Mr. Bennett



 e field of manufacturing. Entering into the Precision Machining Technology (PMT) program, students learn tasks through theory and shop based lessons such as part layout, bench-work, and use of measuring tools. From there they receive instruction on manual and computer controlled (CNC) machinery and experience using drill presses, milling machines, lathes, precision grinders and CNC equipment. To further diversify a student's training, the skill of Welding (Stick, TIG, and MIG) is added for more employment opportunities after high school.
Along the way, students create shop based projects such as bold gages, C-clamps and steam engine models. Students also work toward NIMS (National Institute for Metalworking Skills) certification in several machining areas. With additional post-secondary training, students can sue their knowledge to pursue machine design or mechanical engineering.
