Initiative Siemens has launched a new workforce development program for secondary and technical schools across America called L.E.A.P. — the Lifelong Educational Ad- vantage Program. Made available through Siemens Cooperates with Education, the effort is designed to give high school and technical school graduates a basic to advanced machine tool knowledge that will benefit them in their future careers as CNC machinists. L.E.A.P. starts with Sinutrain, a PC- based, control-identical training system. This software turns any PC screen into an exact representation of the Sinumerik Operate graphical user interface. As part of the program, Siemens provides training courses in two machine tool disciplines: milling and turning. Each of the courses is divided into levels with pre-requisites. Each course level receives a complete curriculum, which includes both classroom and hands-on training models to increase student engagement and un- derstanding. Upon successful completion of each level, students receive Siemens L.E.A.P. Certifications documenting the advanced skill sets needed in today's highly technical manufacturing careers. :: Siemens Industry Inc., 800-879-8079 NEWS 12 PRODUCTION MACHINING :: APRIL 2017
