We will discuss the FANUC Robotics and CNC certification procedure, requirements, and locations.  The curriculum, including on-line software, books, materials will be available.  Levil CNC milling and Lathe equipment will be on-site, which is used in the FANUC certification, and will be presented by Levil and FANUC.  APT Manufacturing Solutions, one of FANUC’s largest integrators, will be on site all week to present hands on opportunities with Robotics and Automation.  They are showcasing an automated SIM cell that includes FANUC robotics, AB area safety control and an industrial conveyor.  FANUC and Rockwell have developed a certification that will be covered.

Amatrol will present MSSC, NIMS Industrial Maintenance Certification, PMMI, and other certifications and eLearning, including Amatrol’s LAP’s and Student reference guides. These certifications take hours of study, preparations and testing, both on-line and on-site.  This workshop will not have the time needed to offer a certifications test in these areas, but will help you prepare for them.

Solidworks will be on-site Thursday and Friday to offer a CSWA certification, you will attend a prep day on Thursday and certification on Friday.  The certification cost is $350.00 if you choose to do it.

DARTdrones will be offering a video conference program on Thursday and Friday and will be covering the requirements for the part 107 Drones certification.  The actual test is only offered at approved FAA locations, published on the FAA website.  We will cover the questions and requirements for the test and include a practice exam. The cost of this workshop is $550.00 and includes the software for the Instructors to take back and use.
