The Advanced Manufacturing & Fabrication Program is designed to provide students with the advanced manufacturing skills for those seeking employment in machine technology and CNC manufacturing environments. Students develop manufacturing skills in mathematics, blueprint reading, principles of quality control, lathe, milling, drill press operations, surface grinding, CNC and much more. Students spend approximately half their time in classroom activities and half in hands-on activities at BCIT's new Advanced Manufacturing Shop. Upon successful completion of the program, students will be able to take the National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS) exam. This exam will certify an individual's skills as measured against NIMS Standards. Earning credentials requires a performance project and a theory test. The projects and theory tests are drawn directly from the NIMS Standards, and are written and piloted by industry. Tuition includes safety glasses, book and NIMS certification exam.
