Mastercam Certification is a rigorous set of knowledge-based and practical tests that demonstrates a programmer's ability to work effectively with CAM software, overcome common issues facing today’s shops, and produce high quality finished parts. CNC Software Inc. offers Certification in Mastercam. There are two Certification levels you can achieve-Associate Level and Professional Level. Associate Level is comprehensive testing based on the latest technologies while Professional Level includes the comprehensive testing combined with a practical application component.

There are many benefits of Mastercam Certification. Programmers and machinists who complete the Mastercam Certification program carry with them a useful means of quickly proving and validating their Mastercam skills in an increasingly demanding industry. And, for an employer, by hiring Mastercam Certified employees, you are guaranteed to get the level of experience and expertise that you demand.

Last month, over 400 students got certified in Mastercam CAD/CAM software in the Broward and Dade Counties. In Florida, Mastercam is on the recognized list for funding, therefore schools can get reimbursed money for each student that gets industrial certification.

"This is a big deal because of the amount of students that are getting certified", says Dustin Spieth, Corporate Educational Office, who goes down to Florida each year to administer the Certification program.

While in Florida each year, Dustin conducts a class to get any new instructors up-to-speed on the Certification program and also show existing instructors any new changes to the Certification program.

The Mastercam Instructor Certification program recognizes instructors employed by a school or organization that is going above and beyond typical CAD/CAM instruction. In the state of Florida, the state requires any instructor that is certifying students to have already obtained the same certification.

"By becoming certified in Mastercam, you are proving to others that you have Mastercam skills, and you are proving to future employers that you are experienced and worthy of being hired," says Dustin.
