      gram  designed  to  prepare  individuals  for  entry  level  CNC   plain the GMAW process, demonstrate safe and proper set up
      Operator jobs.  Instruction covers set up and operation of   of GMAW equipment, and how to understand the AWS GMAW
      CNC mill, manual lathe and vertical milling machines, auto-  electrode  classifications.    Instruction  also  includes  demon-
      mated  machining,  blueprint  reading,  shop  mathematics,   strating the proper electrode use and selection based on metal
      machine tool theory, inspection, surface plate techniques   types  and  the  horizontal positions,  how to  perform  visual  in-
