If you are a highly technical and creative problem-solver with solid math and communication skills, Tool & Die Technology may be a great fit for you. Students have the opportunity to earn the National Institute for Metalworking Skills credential for Materials, Measurement and Safety, and enjoy variety and freedom in their work.
Graduates are highly sought after by local employers in careers such as mold builders, tool makers, die makers, CNC programmers, quality control inspectors, gage makers, instrument makers, or designers. According to Tool & Die Technology instructor Joe Cockrum, “Graduates have as many job offers as they want to pursue.”
This program also qualifies for the Future Ready Iowa Last Dollar Scholarship which means that your tuition is FREE.
Cockrum recently sat down with J. Brooks to talk about the General Machinist and Tool & Die Technology programs at NIACC.
