Pinellas Technical College in Clearwater has announced that they now have an evening CNC Basic Class beginning June 1. This training can take a machinist with little or no knowledge of running a CNC Machine and educate them to not only run the machines but program them, as well. They start by teaching students the basic language of G and M codes; students then take the basic code and learn how to put it into lines of information to form a program. From there, they learn to write programs for the CNC mills and CNC lathes.
For more experienced individuals, Pinellas Technical College offers classes in Master Cam that are self-tutorial so a student can move at their own pace.
The CNC Basic Classes are Monday and Wednesdays from 5-9 PM.
First term runs June 1 - July 27; Second term runs Sept. 2 - Oct. 28.
