Not only do machinists make great money, but they also do really interesting work. They make everything from the rims on custom bikes to very precise aerospace parts to molds for things like sunglasses, and more. Almost every product consumers use have been touched by a machinist in some way.
In Weber county, the average wage for manufacturing workers is 40% higher than the 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 II, you will set up and operate metal cutting machine tools. This includes lathes, milling machines, drilling machines, and grinders. You will be positioning work pieces and using many types of cutting tools and measurement tools to machine student projects representing precision components used in the aerospace, automotive and consumer industries.The approximate completion time for the Machinist Level II Certificate is 1200 hours or 10 months at 30 hours per week and maintaining 100% progress.
