Industrial Machine Technology
Students manufacture precision parts in the school’s NIMS (National Institute for Metalworking Skills) authorized training center. The curriculum provides in-school instruction on topics such as: quality control, benchwork, blueprint reading, computer-controlled machines (lathes/milling machines), and manual machines (saws /drills /grinders /lathes and milling machines).
Two Year Half-Day Program
Year One: 8:05 A.M.-10:40 A.M. (36 weeks // 3 credits)
Year Two: 11:35 A.M.-2:10 P.M. (36 weeks // 3 credits)

Students are required to purchase the following at an estimated cost of $150:
- Work Boots (preferably steel-toed)
- Scientific Calculator-TI-35 or better
National Occupational Competency Testing Institute (NOCTI) provides industry-based credentials and partner industry certifications for students enrolled in career and technical education programs.
NIMS sets industry skills standards, certifies individual skills against the standards, accredits training programs that meet NIMS quality requirements, and promotes innovative solutions, such as competency-based apprenticeship, to connect credentialed and work-ready individuals with employers.

“After high school, I went to Penn College for Industrial Machining and I was better prepared than the majority of other students in the class. The CTC gave me the background I needed to be successful in both higher education and the workplace.”
Palmyra and LCCTC Graduate
“We’ve employed numerous graduates from the CTC and the program has proved to be a very good background and building block for the students. In fact, we look to hire employees who have graduated from the CTC.”
