Cost: $1295
Description: This 6-week course will guide students through greater detail on construction practices. Using the guidelines of code, students will develop executable drawings that will be printed in 3D using the Scarra V4 printer. The purpose of the class is to develop more advanced skills required for this latest form of construction using 3D printers – the future of the construction industry. Students will also be prepared to earn their OSHA 30 certification by the conclusion of the class.

Intermediate 3D Printing w/ Certified Additive Manufacturing Fundamentals (CAM-F)

Course: NCI0024-0308 (virtual)
Dates: Oct. 12 – Nov. 4
Days: Tues., Thurs., Sat.
Time: 6 – 9 p.m.
Hours: 32 (remote access)

Cost: $995
Description: This 4-week course has been designed for students to gain a more in-depth understanding of how to use 3D printing in a mechanical setting. Students will work individually and in groups to assemble mechanical components to create a gear box system. They will also be prepared to earn the CAM-F certification, ideal for those interested in careers in automotive, aerospace, medical equipment and more, to increase their workforce readiness in additive manufacturing.

Advanced 3D Printing with Certified Additive Manufacturing Technician (CAM-T)

Course: NCI0025-0309 (virtual)
Dates: Nov. 22 – Dec. 9 (No class Nov. 24, 25, 26)
Days: Mon. - Fri.
Time: 6 – 9 p.m.
Hours: 32 (remote access)

Cost: $995
Description: This 3-week course has been designed for those students who are interested in mastering the full spectrum of 3D printing by implementing electronics into a print. Students will create either a motor-driven, lighted, or pneumatic product using a robotic arm and motorized chassis, and will gain an understanding of developing full documents for manufacturing to assist in 3D development. They will also be prepared to earn the CAM-T certification, for those with a two-year degree and/or who have one or more years of working experience in a manufacturing-related field and are looking to advance their careers.
