Machinist program

Machinists produce precision parts, tools, and instruments utilizing both manual and computerized fabrication systems. Students prepare for apprenticeship with instruction that includes extensive hands-on experience in the use of traditional precision tooling and machining equipment, as well as sophisticated, state-of-the-art equipment including Haas lathes, the Visual Quick Code Probing System and CG Tech software. This is a pre-apprenticeship program for the Tacoma Machinists Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee. The program also provides extended learning opportunities for persons previously or currently employed in related professions.
