Corporate Education & Professional Development Training

Okuma Machine Tool Academy

Okuma America has partnered with Rowan-Cabarrus Community College to provide OEM training for their products and technologies at the Dr. Carol Spalding Advanced Technology Center in Kannapolis, NC.

The purpose of this program is to provide educational opportunities to their employees, distributors and customers on a variety of skills, from legacy machines and controls to the newest technology.

If you’re going to manufacture with the best machine tools on the market, your employees must be well-trained on the technology. From small job shops to large companies like John Deere and General Motors, every student has the same goal: become as efficient as possible on an Okuma machine.
