CAM Class Earns NIMS Credentials
Last month, twenty students in our Computer-Aided Manufacturing class attempted the rigorous National Institute for Metalworking Skills Level 1 credentials in the areas of Measurement, Materials, and Safety, CNC Milling Machine Operations, and CNC Milling Machine Programming. We are proud to announce that this year’s class has earned 46 credentials, approximately double the number earned last year. Even more impressive is the fact that we have accelerated the curriculum to complete NIMS testing during first semester, compared to last year’s class where we spent the entire year preparing. During second semester, students will focus on advanced CAM toolpath programming techniques. We have applied for NIMS program and facility national accreditation, and once we complete the process, we will be the only high school in the state of California with this distinction. A photo of this year’s class with their NIMS certificates is shown below.
