5 Week CNC Swiss MAchine Operations/Setup

Since 1993 CITC has delivered contract CNC training to the general public, directly to private business and various government agencies. We offer state certified training in a well-equipped machining environment. In total, we have been involved with metal cutting manufacturing for over 30 years.
The response to our CNC Swiss Machine Ops/Set-up class has exceeded expectations!
CITC partnered with a number of local Swiss users in the development of the program. This is the perfect training for those employees or candidates transitioning to Swiss from conventional CNC or those who are new to CNC altogether but understand basic machining processes. Swiss Operations training formats include day, evening and a special, one-week accelerated schedule. Special pricing options are available to companies looking to expand their employee’s knowledge base in this growing technology. We only accept a maximum of 8 students in this class so call today for more information on how to get started.
