Examples of Instructional materials for apprenticeship programs

  • Certified Production Technician (CPT) (Colorado): The Certified Production Technician (CPT) program consists of five individual certificate modules: Safety; Quality Practices & Measurement; Manufacturing Processes & Production; and Maintenance Awareness.
  • Basic Blueprint Reading for Machinist (Kentucky): Basic applied math, lines, multi-view drawings, symbols,various schematics and diagrams, dimensioning, techniques, sectional views, auxiliary views, threads and fasteners, and sketching typical to all shop drawings are presented. Safety will be emphasized as an integral part of the course.
  • CNC Milling Machine (Connecticut): Advanced Manufacturing CNC Milling Machine Training Video Series helps to reinforce basic machining skills while the students are taking courses (e.g. course content, tutorial, test prep, etc.) and at the time they become employed when they may have forgotten skills that they learned at the beginning of the program. Employers are also encouraged to use these videos with their employees.
  • Lathe (Connecticut): Advanced Manufacturing Lathe Training Video Series includes Basic Lathe Setup, Turning a Part on a Lathe Using a Live Center and External Thread Cutting (3 videos). These videos help to reinforce basic machining skills while the students are taking courses (e.g. course content, tutorial, test prep, etc.) and at the time they become employed when they may have forgotten skills that they learned at the beginning of the program. Employers are also encouraged to use these videos with their employees.
  • Surface Grinder (Connecticut): Advanced Manufacturing Surface Grinder Training Video Series helps to reinforce basic machining skills while the students are taking courses (e.g. course content, tutorial, test prep, etc.) and at the time they become employed when they may have forgotten skills that they learned at the beginning of the program. Employers are also encouraged to use these videos with their employees.
  • Metal Arc Welding (Connecticut): Advanced Manufacturing Metal Arc Welding Training Video Series helps to reinforce basic machining skills while the students are taking courses (e.g. course content, tutorial, test prep, etc.) and at the time they become employed when they may have forgotten skills that they learned at the beginning of the program. Employers are also encouraged to use these videos with their employees.
  • Tramming a Head, Using an Edge Finder, and Squaring a Vise (Connecticut): Advanced Manufacturing Training Video Series helps to reinforce basic machining skills while the students are taking courses (e.g. course content, tutorial, test prep, etc.) and at the time they become employed when they may have forgotten skills that they learned at the beginning of the program. Employers are also encouraged to use these videos with their employees.
  • AC Circuit Analysis (Iowa): A series of seven 3D simulations on AC Circuit Analysis, which are approximately 2-9 minutes long to help students quickly and thoroughly grasp the concepts being presented in a visual format.
  • DC Circuit Analysis (Iowa): A series of six 3D simulations on DC Circuit Analysis, which are approximately 2-9 minutes long to help students quickly and thoroughly grasp the concepts being presented in a visual format.
  • Industry Readiness Training (Massachusetts): The Industry Readiness Training (IRT) Program is a short- term intensive non-credit training program developed with industry employers to prepare students for entry to mid-level jobs in the local, diverse advanced manufacturing industry.
  • Advanced Manufacturing and Mechatronics Curriculum & MOOCs (Louisiana): This product contains syllabi, final exams, a Manufacturing Skills Standards Council Certified Production Technician credential and the consortium’s proposal to the state Board of Regents to authorize and implement Advanced Manufacturing and Mechatronics programs of study.
  • MTT 121- Machine Tool Theory (South Carolina): Machine Tool Theory – Module 1/Introduction to Machining, Module 2/Safety in Industry, Module 3/Comparison Measurement, Module 4/Precision Measurement, Module 5/Layout Techniques, Module 6/Hand Tools, Module 7/Sawing, Module 8/Hole-Making Operations.
  • 121 Engineering Simulations (Iowa): Explore over 120 3D simulations covering more than 15 topics on engineering.
