FRCC Machining Program Recognized for Teaching Industry Standards

The Machining Program at Front Range Community College has been added to The Manufacturing Institute’s “M-List,” a national recognition that FRCC teaches to industry standards.

Manufacturing Institute endorsement badge“The M-List is an acknowledgement of FRCC’s outstanding machining technology courses,” The Manufacturing Institute stated in notifying FRCC. Specifically, FRCC offers students the opportunity to earn National Association of Manufacturers-endorsed manufacturing skills certifications as a standard part of its program.

The Machining Program also earned accreditation recently from the National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS).

“One key to our focus on student success is to create a superior student experience,” said FRCC President Andy Dorsey. “The Machining Program at the Advanced Technology Center combines state-of-the-art equipment with outstanding instructors who have extensive experience in manufacturing. It’s a combination that our industry partners can rely on for skilled workers.”

The Machining Program offers non-credit training and for-credit certificates.
