30 Weeks






This competence-based course provides a nationally recognised qualification covering the theoretical and practical aspects of 2D Computer Aided Manufacture applied to a range of applications.

This course has been specifically designed for those currently wishing to work, or working in the CNC environment.

This course covers four main outcomes:

  • Manual part programming,
  • Computer numerical control,
  • Computer aided part programming(CAPP),
  • Reinstate the work.

On completion you will:

  • Understand procedures for setting a CNC machine.
  • Produce CNC programmes for both turn and mill components.
  • Load, prove and produce components on CNC machines.
  • Use a CAPP system to produce an NC file from imported CAD data for milling and turning components.
  • Re-instate work area under health and safety requirements.

Entry Requirements

Aimed at those with a technical knowledge of computers or from a technical background wishing to develop skills.  An engineering background is a bonus but not necessary.

To join: You will need to attend a part-time enrolment session.

We now have the official dates for enrolment now and although you will be studying at the Engineering Centre you need to attend the Huddersfield Centre, Manchester Road, HD1 3LD to enrol on this course.
