Grant Funds Available For Basic Machining Hybrid Course at RCC

ASHEBORO (March 2, 2018)

Would you like to learn basic machining or do you have employees who need to learn basic machining? Randolph Community College's Workforce Development and Continuing Education Division has received grant funding that will cover the cost of books, a tool kit, and a calculator required for a "Basic Machining" training class (a value of $463).

RCC is now offering the course, which is an excellent introductory class for those wanting to pursue a career in the maintenance field, in a hybrid format (part in-class and part online). The only cost to students or employers will be the tuition of $180.55.

This Basic Machining course will introduce the fundamentals of measuring tools, tolerances, and the basic set-up and operations of drill presses, lathes, and milling machines, as well as basic calculations as they relate to machining occupations. Emphasis is placed on manufacturing standards and procedures. Upon completion, students should be able to use measuring tools, perform basic machine operations and shop calculations, and apply manufacturing standards. This class can lead to a NIMS 1 and/or 2 Certification (for an additional fee).

The course will meet from 1-5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, March 20 through May 31. The class will meet in Rooms 150/153 of the Continuing Education and Industrial Center on the Asheboro Campus.
