will help you master what it takes to program a CNC
machining center at G code level. We begin in a
basic manner - assuming you have no previous CNC
programming experience.We do, however, assume you understand basic
machining practices as they apply to machining centers.
(At the very least, you should have completed the
Machining Center Setup and Operation on-line class.)
While we begin in a basic manner, we will continue to
build upon previously presented information.By the time you’re finished, you’ll know what it
takes to program a machining center, and you will have
worked on several practice programs.
six Key Concepts which are further divided into sixteen
Each lesson includes a
presentation, reading material (a portion of the
manual), and a test that will be graded. Many
lessons include other assignments as well (coordinate
sheet exercises and programming activites, for example).If you have questions during a lesson, answers
are just an email away.
When you complete this
class, you'll know what it takes to program a CNC
machining center at G code level. While you will
still need hands-on practice with an actual machine
(practice you'll get from your employer), you will
understand the concepts needed to program a machine.

On-Line Classes or CD-Rom Courses
What's the difference?
Much of the
same content is presented in both of these training media,
though the CD-rom
courses tend to be a little more comprehensive than the
on-line classes. Here are the most important differences:
The machining center and turning center
CD-rom course cover all three tasks a student must master
(programming, setup, and operation) in one course. With the
on-line classes, we cover programming in a separate course from
setup and operation.
CD-rom courses include a hard copy of
your manual. With our on-line classes, you print the manual
as you go through the course.
With CD-rom courses, you receive an
answer book and check your own answers. With our on-line classes
your instructor provides grades and comments for each exercise
courses can be used multiple times to train several people. With
the on-line classes each student must register separately.
