Delcam has donated more than 1,000 Delcam University courses, with a total value close to $300,000, to SkillsUSA. The organization serves teachers and high school and college students who are preparing for careers in technical, skilled, and service occupations.
SkillsUSA programs also help to establish industry standards for job-skill training in the lab and the classroom and to promote community service. They include local, state, and national competitions in which students demonstrate occupational and leadership skills.
The university courses will be awarded to the top three participants in the automated manufacturing, CNC milling, CNC turning, and precision CNC machining competitions. The company is supporting 42 state-level student leadership and skills conferences, as well as the National Leadership and Skills Conference.
Delcam University provides online learning for students interested in a manufacturing career and for existing professionals looking to improve their knowledge and to become certified in Delcam’s software.
