Three-Week Online Mastercam Classes Offered



CamInstructor, Inc. has developed three-week online courses for technology teachers who teach the Mastercam CAD/CAM program at middle and high schools, colleges and universities. The multi-faceted, interactive course offerings are designed to help teachers who are new to Mastercam gain knowledge and confidence, and experienced Mastercam teachers who may need a refresher on certain aspects or acquire competence surrounding the new features in the latest release.

There are four courses from which to choose: Mastercam Mill 2D; Mastercam Mill 3D; Mastercam Lathe and Mastercam 4-Axis. Teachers come away with an understanding and best practices in teaching the comprehensive program, including CAD wireframe geometry, CAM toolpaths, solid model toolpaths and dynamic and high-speed toolpaths. Upon completion of each course, the teacher receives: a Certificate of Completion; the Mastercam Training Guide to keep for reference; a Teacher Kit of lesson plans, presentations, quizzes and tests; and continual access to the online course for the next 12 months.

CamInstructor provides the Mastercam HLE Software for the class along with the resources mentioned, and while the duration of the course is three weeks, participants should be willing to spend just one to two hours per day on the material to be successful. Upcoming classes are scheduled for August 7 - 25, October 2 - 20 and November 27 - December 15.

In describing the course, Sheila Weidinger of CamInstructor said, "What is different about this online training program compared to others is that our proven, project-based method includes an instructor who dialogues with the teachers daily during the three weeks, tailoring information for each participant and answering their questions. Further, for an online experience, we have made it feel as much like a classroom as possible with collaborative webinars in the mix. Our surveys consistently indicate a positive experience for the teachers, and many return to take more courses."

The webinars within the courses may be watched live at a scheduled time or accessed later so that a teacher can view it at his or her convenience. That is the primary advantage of online instruction - flexibility for the student.

"Our team at CamInstructor is comprised of teachers. We understand their needs in the classroom and the most helpful tips and tools they can use," said Weidinger. "Our understanding of Mastercam allows us to offer software support to them as well. Taking even just one of these classes is a rock solid, skill-building experience for them. One of the really great things that happens is the teachers who participate in the class often form a helpful network with each other that they can tap into for years to come."
