Training Academy

Total commitment to in house training

Vending Machine

High-Tech Engineering recognise in house training as vital and a key part of our sustainable business plan

With a record of training school leavers since 1994, High-Tech Enginering made a commitment to employ a designated training instructor to implement a tailor made programme designed specificaly around the key skills required for precision CNC machining.

The High-Tech Engineering Training Academy was opened in September 2006 and houses two HAAS machines and also multiple HAAS control training simulators to ensure a steady flow of well-trained, multi-skilled staff.

Our training has been endorsed by SEMTA and the LSC resulting in High-Tech Engineering being approved by EAL an awarding body as an NVQ training center. We were also invited by the LSC to form part of a regional consortium to deliver the new 14 - 19 Engineering Diploma.

We are currently working with SEMTA to deliver an Advanced Engineering Apprenticeship to all students.

Our academy trainees are fully trained in five key areas:

 

Inspection

Academy trainees learn how to operate CMM measuring equipment and the ability to write inspection programmes.
The skills to be able to read drawings and use a variety of manual checking gauges.
The importance of working to procedures from first off to final inspection.

 

CNC Turning

During the course of the training programme we ensure that all academy trainees are fully competent in working 2 and 3 axis machinery.
They are also trained in the skills required to access and plan methods of manufacture.

 

CNC Milling

During the course of the training programme we ensure that all academy trainees are fully competent in working 3, 4 and 5 axis machinery.
They are also trained in the skills required to access and plan methods of manufacture.

 

Programming

Academy trainees start learning on HAAS control training simulators, and are taught all aspects of CAD/CAM.
We ensure they are competent to create their own programmes from a variety of cad data including solid models and are also competent
in producing 2D technical drawings.

 

Business Improvement Techniques

A Business Improvement Technique NVQ is currently being delivered so that trainees have an understanding of problem solving in order
to become a complete multi-skilled engineer.
