Business Training Center - Aerospace Manufacturing Tooling Certificate of Completion


Return to Degrees and Certificates by Type Return to: Degrees and Certificates by Type

Program Description Graduates of this program qualify for entry level positions as toolmakers. Toolmakers utilize a wide variety of machines, tools, processes and skills to create jigs, fixtures, patterns and other production supporting equipment. This position differs from production personnel in that many tooling projects require a very high degree of accuracy, designing of one-of-a kind tools and parts, as well as a high degree of critical thinking and analytical problem solving skills. Toolmakers work with machinists, welders, and engineers to define, create, and validate tooling. Students completing this program will have received rigorous training in theory and application for entry into the aerospace tooling industry. Many skills built in the Aerospace Tooling program can readily transfer to other industries. This certificate of completion requires successful completion of a minimum of 17 credits as outlined.

Advising Note This program requirement sheet is not a substitute for meeting with an academic advisor. Meeting the requirements to graduate with an Edmonds CC certificate or degree is ultimately the responsibility of the student.
