Mills CNC Training Academy partners with aerospace body

1 min read

Mills CNC's '360' Training Academy has entered into a partnership agreement with the Coventry & Warwickshire Aerospace Forum (CWAF), an organisation linked to The Midlands Aerospace Alliance (MAA), to deliver Fanuc CNC Programmer Training courses to members.

The partnership arrangement between both organisations will see Forum member companies infill onto existing '360' Training Academy CNC Programmer Training courses over a 12-month period. In the first instance, the partnership will see six CWAF member companies (14 individuals in total) enlisting onto '360' Training Academy's CNC Programmer Training Courses. Each member will receive 10 days training, where everything from basic Fanuc CNC programmer training (2-axis lathes), right through to more complex and sophisticated Fanuc CNC programmer training for multi-axis turning centres (9-axis machines), will be covered. The decision by CWAF to contract its members' CNC programmer training requirements to the '360' Training Academy is, according to '360' Training Academy Manager, Jeff Hart "fantastic news and a real positive endorsement". The '360' Training Academy, part of Mills CNC, opened its doors for business in September 2009. The Academy organises and runs a number of in-depth, practically-oriented training courses from its Leamington facility that not only includes Fanuc CNC programmer training, but also Heidenhain CNC programmer training, specialist machine tool maintenance courses, and CNC machine tool operator training. As well as these arrangements with CWAF - and with the MAA generally - the Training Academy has also secured training contracts with other influential and prestigious organisations, which, to date, includes Cambridge University.
