FULL PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
CNC and Precision Machining Skills Training program is a skills-based employment program that prepares participants for entry level work within the Manufacturing sector. Students will learn how to:
- Safely operate shop equipment
- Read and interpret technical drawings
- Design and manufacture tools, jigs, fixtures, precision fabrication assemblies and prototypes
- Use of computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing software, precision machining equipment and CNC machine tool technology
This program integrates precision machining methods with Computer Controlled Machine Technology (CNC) in state-of-art Precision Machining, CAD/CAM, CNC, and Welding labs.
Program curriculum is based on input from industry employers and faculty in George Brown College’s Centre for Construction and Engineering Technologies. Courses will provide graduates with Ontario Public College Credits, which may be applied towards further education (i.e. Ontario Public College Diploma) and graduates will receive a George Brown College Certificate.

CAREERS AND POST-GRADUATE STUDY OPPORTUNITIES
Graduates may find employment in areas as:
- Transit and OEM automotive parts companies
- Health care
- Construction and building industries
- Electrical and electronics industries
- Tool & Die Making
- General machining
- CNC precision machining and tool-making industries
- Research, prototyping and development of new and existing products
Precision Machining, CAD/CAM, Welding, Digital Manufacturing and CNC technology covers the spectrum from traditional manufacturing to sophisticated high-speed, high-precision manufacturing that is required in the design and production of highly specialized equipment and machinery. In addition, these technologies play a vital role in research and development of new and existing products.
The future of the tooling industry will depend on highly educated and highly skilled technicians, and our program provides graduates with a solid foundation and an advantage to succeed in this rapidly evolving industry.
