DOL Registered Apprenticeships

CNC Operating: Milling & Turning

The CNC Operating apprenticeship can focus on the mill, lathe or both. The apprentice would learn how to set up, operate, and tear down the machine, properly inspect the product before, during and after the machine runs it course and learn the basics of GD&T, and programming of the CNC machine.

The CAD/CAM apprenticeship can be focus on CAD, CAM or both disciplines upon request. The apprentice would learn different types of programs such as MasterCAM, Solidoworks, AutoCAD, and Fusion 360. Upon request we can edit the apprenticeship to include 3-D printing as well. CCM CAD/CAM Competencies

Quality Assurance/ Quality Control

The QA/QC apprenticeship can focus on either QA, QC, or both. The apprentice would learn the basic measurement tools (micrometers, calipers and gauges), read blueprints, formulas, and clean/maintain measuring instruments( dial indicators, gauges and height gauges). CCM QA/QC Competencies

Maintenance Mechanic

The maintenance mechanic apprentice is purposely vague.  CCM wants to be able to make this apprenticeship specific to your machines the mechanic will be fixing.  We teach the general knowledge on how to perform proper trouble shooting techniques and diagnosing mechanical failures. We teach on the CNC and manual mills and lathes, different kinds of saws and drill press. We are open to having a conversation to see how we can suit your needs for maintenance mechanic apprenticeships and the machines they will learn how to fix. CCM Industrial Maintenance Mechanic Competencies

Robotics Technician

The robotics technician apprenticeship will allow the apprentice to gain both technical experience and an electrical foundation. The apprenticeship focuses on PLCs, Kobots, and automation. The apprentice will learn how to trouble shoot robotic systems, install, re-write, and correct programing, while gaining a working knowledge of electrical physics. CCM Robotics Technician Competencies

Tool/ Die Manufacturer

The tool/die manufacturer apprenticeship is a perfect way to develop a manual machinist’s skills to the next level. The apprentice would learn, how to make an unworkable raw material workable, fit and assemble parts to make, repair, or modify dies, jigs, gauges, and tools, using machine tools, hand tools, or welders, use measuring instruments (calipers, gauge blocks, and micrometers), and conduct test runs of tools or dies. CCM Tool/ Die Manufacturer Competencies

For every DOL Registered Apprenticeship CCM can edit up to 25% of the OJT to suit your company need while also keeping the apprenticeship registered with the DOL.

Benefits for upskilling your current workforce:

  • Creates a clear pathway for current employees to back fill more mid to senior level roles
  • Saves money otherwise focused on recruitment efforts
  • Increases employee attraction and retention
  • Produces loyal, skilled, successful, and motivated employees
  • Advantages over competitors as the industry adapts to the ever-changing technology and job market

Your employees will receive hands-on training in our very own machine shop!


Weiss Aug

“We are very pleased with CCM Student performance and rate of learning which is quick at this point. The OJT he has been provided at Weiss Aug makes him feel prepared for the CNC Mill Tech course work he is being sponsored through at CCM. Again, hiring CCM Student has been win so far from our point of view and Thanks to your Team for helping make this happen.”

PK Precision

“Both our CCM Students are performing very well. Having learned some of the basics ahead of time has saved a bunch of time so that we can focus more on the machining aspects of our line of work.

Apprenticeships are a benefit because it gives the students real life experience and opportunities to learn what it takes to be a machinist. It also helps the company to potentially receive and retain people that will be of value for the present and the future of the business..

At current time, we have all the people we need. In the future if we have a requirement, we will definitely go through CCM to hire employees. The students are supplied with basic training on tools and what the machines do which is great. It saves us on having to go over the basics which takes time and takes away from production time.”

“The survey showed 87% of manufacturers identified upskilling and reskilling their workforce as very important or somewhat important for their business success. As demand for new capabilities gathers pace, reskilling and upskilling can enable manufacturers to develop the skills needed to remain competitive.” – Manufacturing Industry Skills and Competencies Survey Report
