Machining/Welding/Painting Technologies

  • Our courses provide students with the opportunity to become intorduced to these disciplines, with some providing a Certificate of Completion. [The Nebraska Finishing Technologies Certification Program differs in that upon successful completion will provide a certificate documenting the student’s completion of the training requirements of Subpart 6H of the Federal EPA rule 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart HHHHHH (6H).]

    Our rotating list of Machining/Welding/Painting Technologies classes include…

  • Basic Precision Machining
    This course uses a practical approach to basic machining, including proper speed, feed rates and machine setups of drill presses, band saws, lathes, mills, and grinders. Participants must bring their own safety glasses, calculator, and materials for taking notes. No shorts or open-toed shoes allowed. No outside projects are used in class. Students who successfully complete this class are eligible to take the advanced machine shop night class, where instructor-approved outside projects are allowed. Course meets once a week for eight weeks in the evening. For the next class details, contact Kirby Taylor at 402-761-8369 or ktaylor@southeast.edu. Gap Tuition Assistance available to those who qualify. For financial assistance options, visit the Continuing Education Financial Assistance page.

    Advanced Precision Machining
    This is a machine shop class designed to enhance individual skills. Students work on their own projects brought from home. Projects also can be supplied by the College to aid in developing student skills. There are no project completion requirements. Instructor assistance is available. All projects must be approved by the program chair of the PMA program. Operation of CNC equipment by persons that are not currently enrolled in the PMA program is not permitted without a thorough review of the individual’s ability which will be done by the PMA program chair or designated instructor.

    Basic Welding
    Basic Welding is an opportunity to learn basic welding skills and for experienced welders to enhance their skills. Classes include safe operation of Stick, Mig, Tig and Oxy-acetylene welders and related shop equipment through hands-on practical welding experiences. Students will need to provide their own safety glasses, leather gloves, leather boots, arc-welding helmet, and pliers. Students also must pass the shop safety test to remain in this class. Gap Tuition Assistance available to those who qualify. For financial assistance options, visit the Continuing Education Financial Assistance page.
    This six-hour class uses state-of-the-art virtual reality technology to provide hands-on training on increasing transfer efficiencies, decreasing material usage, spray booth maintenance, safety procedures, and environmental regulations. This technology shows each finisher how well they do within 1 percent for transfer efficiency and .5 mil for finish thickness. Participants completing this training by passing an exam will earn a five-year certification that can be used as an option to satisfy the federal certification standard and the Nebraska hazardous air pollutant best available control technology requirements.
