Sierra College is one of Northern California’s top community colleges offering courses, certificates, degrees and transfer as well as other programs primarily in Placer and Nevada counties. Sierra College has campuses in Rocklin, Nevada County and Tahoe-Truckee.
Training and Development is part of the Sierra College Workforce Innovation program in the Business and Technology Division.
Community Education at Sierra College offers a kaleidoscope of exciting classes and activities designed to meet the personal enrichment and professional development interests of those who reside in Placer and Nevada counties.
The Community Education courses are short-term, not-for-credit, fee-based classes, workshops and training programs providing opportunities for participants to expand their horizons.
Community Education at Sierra College offers business classes such as change management and computer basics as well as certificates in digital marketing and project management, among many other offerings.
The Haas Center for Advanced Manufacturing by Design at Sierra College prepares students through hands-on courses to design, build and manufacture using Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machining.
Semester courses are available through the Sierra College catalog and registration process. In addition, customized courses can be developed through Sierra Training and Development using the CNC lab facilities. The college also works with industry partners to offer pre-apprenticeship programs.
ADVM 0062 Introduction to 2D CAD/CAM
Introduction to use and operation of a CAD/CAM software system. Developing part geometry with Computer Aided Design (CAD), importing files, planning cutting and machine operations, and developing machine tool paths using Computer-Aided Machining (CAM).
ADVM 0063 Design Using Fusion 360
Integration of Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided-Manufacturing (CAM) using the Autodesk Fusion 360 software platform. This includes parametric solid model designing, and the presentation of those designs using built in model rendering. Also covered is the use of CAM tools for control of CNC machines. (not transferable)
ADVM 0064 Computer-Aided 2D Design
Study of Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) cutting systems in the 2D world using industry standard hardware and development software. Topics include design principles, copyright, selection of materials, billing of materials and job estimating, basic G and M code commands, use of consumables, cut quality evaluation, and trouble-shooting techniques.
ADVM 0066 CNC Mill 3D Manufacturing
Principles and operative skills to setup, program, and operate Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling machines, designed to impart basic manufacturing knowledge and skills. Instruction of Geometrics, Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM), beginning CNC operations and manual programming skills, and measurement.
ADVM 0067 CNC Three/Multi-Axis Milling
Applications using multi-axis CNC machining. Developing complicated part geometry with Computer Aided Design (CAD), importing files, planning machine operations, and developing machine codes by Computer-Aided Machining (CAM) with multi-axis focus. Includes simulation modeling used to proof the assigned laboratory exercises and set-up for 3+2 and 4th and 5th axis operation of CNC machining centers.
