Mastercam's Summer Teacher Training is Around the Corner

Tolland, CT – CNC Software, Inc., developer of Mastercam CAD/CAM software, announces that its Summer Teacher Training courses have been determined and registration is now open.

Mastercam’s Summer Teacher Training program is designed with the instructor in mind. Not only will it teach you to use Mastercam, but you will learn how to teach your students to use Mastercam effectively. Collaborative, hands-on training lets you experience the projects in much the same way your students would. In addition, classes are kept small so we can focus on the needs of the group.

Attending Mastercam’s Summer Teacher Training gives you an opportunity to interact and network with other Mastercam teachers. And, each instructor that attends will receive a free Mastercam University course. You can choose a class that complements what you have learned, or choose a completely different subject to expand your Mastercam knowledge.

Here are the Summer Teacher Training programs being offered and a brief description:
