“The course I’m teaching is made for wood shop owners who want to automate, but are a little intimidated by technology,” Corrales says. “I like to make things simple by breaking down information into short segments. That way it’s easy to see what you need and don’t need to learn when operating an automated CNC shop.” Corrales’s course will cover the pros and cons of popular CNC software, and how operators with zero experience can be competent CNC operators on their very first day of production.
