FANUC Adds CNC Training Program

The company offers two Certified Education training programs for high school, trade school and college students.

FANUC America (Rochester Hills, Michigan) has announced the FANUC Certified Education CNC Training program for North American schools, designed to teach students the knowledge and skills necessary to run a CNC mill or lathe. Students can achieve certification by passing both an academic and practical skills test to ensure competence.

Taught by FANUC-certified instructors, the curriculum will cover critical aspects of CNC machine setup, operation and programming. Students who participate in the program will write, edit and proof programs using 3D solid model animation in NCGuide software running on a PC. Using a USB memory stick, they will transfer the part program from NCGuide to the CNC on a machine either in the classroom or a workshop and then perform setup and testing.

FANUC also offers its Certified Education Robot Training (CERT) program. Both training programs are available to high schools, trade schools, community colleges and universities with manufacturing diploma programs or STEM curricula.
