Read comments from participants.
Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Another CNC Milling Programming, Setup and Operations class is in the books. All of the participants passed the performance portion of the test, and are now eligible, pending Met-Tec committee review, to take the theory test for the NIMS credential.

The following comments were made by two of the participants:

The instructor is a veteran shop professor. Very organized. He is qualified to teach . . .
