Mastercam Certification™ is a rigorous set of practical tests that demonstrate a programmer’s ability to work effectively with CAM software, overcome common issues facing today’s shops, and produce high quality finished parts. Programmers completing Mastercam Certification™ carry with them a useful means of quickly proving their skills in an increasingly demanding industry.
Mastercam Certification™ was developed by a board made up of some of the most respected names in industrial CNC training. After developing definitions, standards, and tests that would apply across most industries, the board separated the certification into several components, each focusing on different aspects of manufacturing.
Mastercam Certification Overview™
Within curricula sets there are two testing and Certification levels. The Associate Certification is strictly comprehensive testing based on the latest technologies. The Professional Certification includes the comprehensive testing combined with a practical application component.
Mastercam Associate Level Certification™
The Mastercam Associate Level Certification is a reliable validation of your skills and knowledge in the use of Mastercam software. It is the first benchmark and a useful step toward a Mastercam Professional Level Certification. To achieve Mastercam Associate Level Certification, students must score an 80% or above on the posttest of each online module in the Mastercam University class, and an 80% or above on the online final comprehensive exam. The Mastercam Associate Level Certification is available only online at www.mastercamu.com.
