ADVANCED MANUFACTURING AND ENGINEERING

Might a career in Advanced Manufacturing be for you, or for someone you care about? CCM’s Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Center helps prepare students for a rewarding career in this field with opportunities for apprenticeships and advanced skills training.

Today’s world of Advanced Manufacturing is a blend of fundamentals and new skills.  Basic blueprint reading is a must-have for everyone from line to leadership.  An introduction to Six Sigma provides an understanding of the fundamentals of this dynamic set of process tools.  These courses provide both novice and experienced workers with new knowledge and refresh the tool-kit required of all staff in the manufacturing arena.

BLUEPRINT READING AND MEASUREMENTS (WDT-145E)

Learn how to read shop and engineering blueprints and how to fabricate parts and perform assembly operations. Learn current drafting standards and blueprint reading techniques, review standard lines and symbols, sketching techniques, orthographic projection, auxiliary views, drawings, dimensions, tolerances, sectional views, title block information, machining specifications and specialized forms of engineering drawings. Learn how to draw principal and isometric views and understand how blueprints and tolerances relate to the manufacturing process.
