With such a demand for workers in the machining industry, the job market has restricted a company's ability to upskill their staff, let alone try to have new employees shadow more experienced workers, as they are too busy making product, unable to slow down to "training speed." While most companies can't accommodate training for multiple people at once at their own facility, several companies might be willing to upskill one or two employees at a time, by outsourcing said training to Cuyahoga Valley Career Center (CVCC). This format will ultimately not interfere with current production or the workload of more experienced staff. CVCC has latched onto this layout with the introduction of the Certified Production Technician (CPT) 4.0 Program and the Machining Technology Program. The CPT program is 180-hours and has employers eager to hire, as this short term training gets you certified and career-ready. The Machining Technology program is 650-hours, which involves skills for multi-level employment in the machining industry, including: machining fundamentals and tool introduction, computer numerical control (CNC) milling and turning, CAD/CAM systems, and advancing machining.
