Not only do machinists make great money, but they also do really interesting work. They make everything from the rims on custom bikes, highly-precise aerospace parts, molds for things like sunglasses, and more. Almost every product consumers use have been touched by a machinist in some way.
In Weber county, average wage for manufacturing workers is 40% higher than national average, or $1,051 more per month. Machining is a highly skilled profession that offers great working conditions, excellent pay, yet does not require a four-year degree. Local employers are anxious to hire new OWATC graduates.
As a Machinist Level I, you will be setting up and operating a variety of computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines, including lathes, turning centers, and machining centers; involving positioning work pieces, using a wide variety of cutting tools, and working with computers to machine precision work pieces representing components used in aerospace, automotive, and consumer industries.The approximate completion time for the Machinist Level I Certificate is 900 hours or 7.5 months at 30 hours per week and maintaining 100% progress.
