Manual Machining Fundamentals (C50210RP)


This pathway is offered at Reidsville High School. This pathway is designed to provide individuals with an introduction to basic machining principles and technical skills. Students will be prepared with the skills for entry level employment in manufacturing. Upon successful completion, students will be awarded a certificate. Courses within the certificate may be applied toward an Associate of Applied Science degree in Computer-Integrated Machining.

Employment Outlook

Employment of machinists is projected to grow 4% from 2019 to 2029, about as fast as the average for all occupations. With improvements in technologies, such as computer numerically controlled (CNC) machine tools, autoloaders, high-speed machining, and lights-out manufacturing, machinists will still be required to set up, monitor, and maintain these systems.
