The RevUp machining program teaches the theory and operation of mills and lathes, both manual and CNC, other related machinist tools, and associated programming. RevUp’s machining programs train students in state-of-the-art facilities and sometimes use online classes. . There are two levels of training. Local manufacturers helped design the training based on the skills they need in their businesses. RevUp’s machining program students can earn National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS) credentials during their program.
During Tier 1: Students focus on background skills, like reading blue-prints. At the end of Tier 1, students earn a Certificate of Technical Skills degree, if they do not continue into higher levels of training. Tier 1 also typically includes opportunities to earn 2-3 NIMS Level I credentials.
During Tier 2: Students work on safe operation of mill and lathes, including CNC machines. They also start learning Solidworks and MASTERCAM. Tier 2 typically includes opportunities to earn 2-3 additional NIMS Level 1 credentials. Students completing both Tier 1 and Tier 2 will earn a Certificate of Applied Science degree.
