Last month, more than 400 students were certified in Mastercam CAD/CAM software in the Broward and Dade Counties in Florida. In that state, Mastercam is on the recognized list for funding, therefore, schools can be reimbursed for each student who earns an industrial certification.

"This is a big deal because of the amount of students that are becoming certified," says Dustin Spieth in the Mastercam's corporate educational office, who travels to Florida each year to administer the certification program.

While in Florida, Dustin conducts a class to teach new instructors the certification program and also shows experienced instructors any new changes to the certification program.

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. There are two certification levels: 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.
