"This program teaches you so many skills that it gave me the edge to get my new job just a few weeks after graduating!"   - Lidia T.

Students working toward an AMTC certificate will take classes in the new NVCC Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center, where they will find hands-on access to state-of-the-art machining technology in an environment that simulates an actual shop floor. This means upon completion of the certificate, you will have had direct experience with the machines you will use in the workforce as well as the classroom time necessary to help you understand the theory behind the work.


What will I learn?

AMTC classes are:

  • 30% traditional in-class studies, where you’ll learn how to read blueprints, design in CAD and master the mathematical formulas necessary for entry-level work
  • 70% hands-on laboratory experience working directly with machines
