CNC courses from Karen Earley at CNC Training Academy

CNC courses from Karen Earley at CNC Training Academy

Added to MTDCNC by Mills CNC Ltd on 19 September 2012

The CNC Training Academy, based in Leamington, has recently increased its headcount and strengthened its training resource to meet demand for its training courses with the appointment of a new trainer.

Karen Earley, previously a Training Assessor at South Leicestershire College’s Engineering Training Centre, joined the Training Academy in September 2012, and will start her career (initially) running a range of CNC Turning and CNC Milling Setter and Operator courses.

These courses are aimed Mills CNC customers but have also been designed for any employed machine operator and/or setter who needs to brush up on his or her skills, as well as for unemployed adults looking at pursuing a career in engineering.

Says Karen:

‘I’m really looking forward to running these training sessions and then to progress to running the numerous Fanuc, Heidenhain and Siemens CNC Programmer courses that have helped establish the Training Academy as the leading CNC Programmer training provider.

Karen brings a wealth of experience to her new role.

As well as being PTTLS (Preparing to Teach in a Life-long Learning Sector) and CTTLS (Continuing to Teach in a Life-long Learning Sector) qualified, Karen has considerable experience in the private sector too.

Having left school at 16, Karen completed her 4 year Craft Apprenticeship at Thorn Lighting, Leicester, where she achieved Mechanical Engineering Craft Studies 1, 2 and 3 and in her seven years at the company gained invaluable machining and manufacturing experience (milling, turning, maintenance, servicing etc).

Following a period in Australia, she then returned to the UK and held a number of machining (Programming and Setting) and training positions at Tec Manufacturing and Summit Engineering – precision subcontractors located in Leicestershire, before moving to the Further Education sector.

Concludes Karen:

‘It’s a great being part of a training organisation that’s successful and has such ambitious growth plans.

‘The Academy’s reputation amongst UK and Irish manufacturers is second to none – and I’m delighted that I am involved with, and can make a real contribution to, such a progressive and forward-thinking organisation.’

Comments Jeff Hart, CNC Training Academy’s Manager:

‘It’s fantastic having Karen on board. Her skills and experience have helped her hit the ground running from day one...and I’m confident that she will be a big success.’
