STAR CNC TRAINING

Based on input from our customers, as well as our own experience, we have decided to restructure our training program. We now offer CNC training courses as a part of our 4 weeks long STAR CNC training program. During this four-week program, students will learn the simple basics of machining, Swiss Concepts, proper set up techniques, basic programming, complex macro programming and many other topics that will increase their productivity. Courses include both classroom activities and hands-on experience on our STAR machines.

Program consists of 4 courses. Each course is 1 week (5 days long). We require each student to have four weeks of practical hands-on experience between each course taken.

Courses can be taken individually, or as a part of the program. Price per course is $1,500 ($300 per day).

Courses are taught at our facility located at 161 Sanrico Dr, Manchester CT 06042.

Please check with your state government if there are any available grants for employee training.

For registration, list of courses, course outline and course schedule please see below. For any other questions, please contact our office at 860-783-5555 or at training@netoolcorp.com.
