Workforce Development


Manufacturing jobs are in high demand right here in Chicago. And with just 6 months of training, you can begin working as a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machinist—which means better pay and a more rewarding career.

Our 10-week pre-certification program gives you the basic skills in math, reading and writing you will need to enter a CNC Machinist certification program at Wright College in Chicago's Humboldt Park neighborhood.

Get Started

Once enrolled, you will be assigned a case manager to provide you with the support you need. Just as important, you'll also join a community of learners who will help you succeed as you move into and through the program.

Continuing Your Education

Our Workforce Development department also provides assistance with the college application process, resume building, career counseling, workplace rights training, OSHA regulations and access to valuable professional development opportunities.
