The technology training experts at Cam Instructor are offering their Mastercam training courses in both online and hybrid formats. Each CNC programming training course includes video instruction, step-by-step printable instructions, and quizzes and exams.

Cam Instructor’s online courses kept CNC programming instruction on track during the Covid-19 pandemic by allowing students to learn remotely for uninterrupted training. Now, these courses can be offered in a hybrid format for the ultimate in flexibility as more workers head back to the shop or office.

For instance, the company’s Mastercam Premium Bundle subscription includes a full version of Mastercam Home Learning Edition software licensed for educational use with more than 200 hours of Mastercam training contained in seven courses. For those times when students are stumped, they can ask an unlimited number of questions to a Certified instructor for up to a year. This is especially helpful during online-only instruction.

Additionally, four certificates are available and awarded after passing interactive hands-on tests for Mill 2D, Mill 3D, Lathe and 4-axis. These certificates confirm that the student has passed and can draw and toolpath a part similar to the part examples in the course. Because Cam Instructor is a third-party partner of CNC Software, LLC, the developers of Mastercam, certifications in these courses are recognized by them.

In addition to the Mastercam instruction, other courses available by Cam Instructor include, manual programming courses for CNC Mill and Lathe, how to Setup and Operate a Haas 3-Axis, 4-Axis, 5-Axis CNC Mill and Lathes in addition to comprehensive Solidworks courses which include Sketching, Modeling, Assemblies and Drawings.

The courses are designed for students who want or need to learn at their own pace. All include step-by-step instructions and coordinating videos so that each step is demonstrated for all types of learners. Each task is short and easy to accomplish, encouraging the student to use the software to learn rather than reading lengthy tutorials. In fact, more than 75 percent of a student’s time is spent working on projects, building up from simple CAD drawings to more complex parts and toolpaths by the end of the course. The end of each lesson includes exercises to help reinforce what the student has already learned.

Employers can track and review employee progress every step of the way on both computers and their smart phones, providing a real-time report on their investment. Further, in hybrid operations, employers can offer the online courses on-site at a time and place that works best for their own situation.
