Choice Career College in Des Plaines, IL is now a FANUC Certified Education CNC school that offers students in the Chicagoland area a computerized manufacturing diploma. The program offers education by FANUC CNC certified instructors, FANUC CNC approved curriculum and genuine FANUC CNC equipment.
The Choice Career College computerized manufacturing diploma program is a comprehensive qualified FANUC CNC Program that can be completed in four months focusing on English, mathematics, blueprint reading, machine processes, measuring (GD&T), CNC setup, programming, operations and G-code applications.

The program is designed to ensure competency and offers an enrollment application, testing during courses, final comprehensive and certification exams.

Students are taught CNC programming by first using FANUC NCGuide simulation software on a PC for the most extensive hands-on experience. Moreover, the Levil CNC certification cart, equipped with a FANUC Series 0i-Mate MODEL D CNC, allows students to experience the complete programming, setup and operational workflow right inside the classroom.

"The CNC program answers the demand from the manufacturing industry for skilled FANUC CNC operators and programmers," states William Jones, CNC Program Director/Faculty at Choice Career College. "This will set graduates up for success in their manufacturing career to read and interpret blueprints, determine machine coordinate values, develop CNC code, test the NC programs, QC the part and implement the part into production. Graduates will also be proficient in using simulation software and understand how to reduce machine wear and avoid machine crashes."

With the ongoing problem of a shortage of skilled workers, the need to train future machinists is paramount to fill growing gaps in the domestic work force. A new employee needs to be productive right out of the gate with knowledge of modern CNC technology that is dominant in the market today, and they need to run their CNC machine with minimum supervision.

The FANUC America Certified Education CNC Training (CERT) program was created to ensure that students that qualify have learned suitable basic computer numerical control (CNC) skills from a FANUC certified instructor, teaching a FANUC approved curriculum and using genuine FANUC CNC equipment.
