Introductory ALPHACAM Training

Introductory ALPHACAM Training (IAT) is a mandatory prerequisite for all other ALPHACAM training courses. This 3-day course will provide users with the foundation they need to maximize the productivity of their business and of the ALPHACAM software. IAT is designed so that virtually every user who has basic computer and CNC machining knowledge can apply fundamental ALPHACAM software applications to the daily production of their business.

As with all training classes, IAT is taught by an accredited ALPHACAM instructor. The instructor will walk each student through the tutorial, answering questions and providing software tips throughout the class. To allow each student to take full advantage of the course, each class will accommodate up to 8 students. This enables the instructor to pay special attention to each student and create a comfortable learning atmosphere for both the student and the instructor.

The objective of this class is to familiarize students with basic features of ALPHACAM software. This class is excellent for those learning ALPHACAM for the first time as well as experienced users who would like a refresher course. Understanding IAT is essential for all students who plan to participate in other ALPHACAM courses so they can take full advantage of the softwares functionality.
