• Overview - 2019/2020

    The modern manufacturing process is hard working and sophisticated. And the modern machinist needs an up-to-date toolkit to be respected and qualified.

    A general machinist builds, installs, operates, maintains and repairs machines and machine tools. Some parts of the manufacturing industry have changed, but you know it takes dedication, hard work and attention to detail. You want to combine training with earning power, so you've chosen the apprenticeship component, where you'll mix workplace-based training under the direction of experienced workers. You'll combine that with short stints in the classroom or in an online training environment.

    You'll learn to operate precision metal-cutting instruments and grinding machines including lathes, drills and grinders and milling machines. You'll also learn to use sophisticated computerized numeric control (CNC) systems, which require enhanced math and reading skills. But don't worry, Fanshawe's expert instructors and your workplace mentors will guide you every step of the way.

    If you like to work with your hands, and like to see what you've created at the end of a long day, this program is for you. You'll graduate a skilled craftsperson who can modify and repair custom, prototype or special tools, dies, jigs and fixtures, with pride and confidence in your work and your toolkit.
