STCC offers training opportunities for advanced manufacturing employees
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Springfield Technical Community College’s Workforce Development Center will offer two intensive three-day courses to help workers in advanced manufacturing learn new skills.
A CMM training course, which starts Aug. 9, covers everything you need to know to inspect your first part on a Ziess CMM.
A second course, 5 Axis CNC Mill Training, starts Aug. 16 and covers everything you need to know to make your first part on a five axis CNC mill.
