Accelerated CNC training program for military and civilians

 The Vincennes University Right Skills Now – CNC Machining Certificate Program is designed to prepare veterans and civilian adult learners to become well-rounded entry level CNC machinists with upward mobility potential, and applications ranging from pipe fitting to plumbing, to medical devices. The curriculum is a combination of machining theory, 25%, and extensive hands-on training, 75%. The duration of the training is 15 weeks at 8 hours per day, 5 days per week, for a total of 600 hours. Four college credits are awarded for successfully completing the training and each of the 6 required NIMS credentials, for a total of 24 credit hours. The VUHTEC CNC lab contains 15 industrial size Haas CNC machines plus an array of supporting manual machines and quality assurance measuring equipment.


As a VA approved program, veterans can apply their benefits towards tuition and supplies, and in some cases living expenses. Candidates must have a high school diploma, or a GED. Classes traditionally run January through April, May through August, and September through December. VU offers a 25% discount on housing for those that need room and board for the 15 weeks, and there is assistance in job placement as graduates begin their career as a CNC Machinist.
