OREGON CITY – This summer, Clackamas Community College is offering an accelerated program that is designed to get students jobs in just three months – tuition free.

The CNC operator training, offered by Clackamas TechHire, will prepare qualified students for jobs as computer numerical control (CNC) operators. This 12-credit training will take place Monday-Thursday, June 25-Sept. 8, on the Oregon City campus, 19600 Molalla. Ave.

Clackamas TechHire is funded by a U.S. Department of Labor grant to provide young adults, ages 17-29, and frontline incumbent workers with the skills they need – through innovative training approaches, specialized services and one-on-one guidance and support – to gain employment in and advance to new positions in the manufacturing and technology industries. High school graduates are especially encouraged to apply.

“During this class I enjoyed the hands-on-learning environment. It’s easier to learn from seeing and doing rather than out of a book,” Faith Johnson, former TechHire student, said.

This course focuses on the skills required to operate CNC machine tools to produce high-quality, precision machined components for a wide variety of applications and industries. Students in the CNC operator training will learn:

  • Basic competency with common machine tools
  • CNC operations
  • Blueprint reading
  • Career readiness
  • Resume building
  • Shop math
  • Inspection and quality control

Demand is high in manufacturing fields right now, with an average salary of $44,650, according to WorkSource. With continued education and training, CNC operators can advance to become CNC setup technicians, CNC programmers and precision machinists.

“I liked the professional atmosphere surrounding my classes. The teachers understood the needs of the industry and how to get us trained to get a job,” Loren Van Wiel, former TechHire student, said. “I have two job offers that I am deciding on right now!”

Want to learn more? CCC is hosting information sessions on Wednesdays at noon in the Family Resource Center, room 117, on the Oregon City campus. Contact TechHire advisors at e@clackamas.edu">TechHire@clackamas.edu or call Tom Brown at 503-594-3956. Visit our website at www.clackamas.edu/techhire.
