CNC Training Courses

    CNC Training Courses

    Our Beginner to Advanced CNC training programmes can be completed at your facility or at our ETG headquarters located in Wellesbourne, Warwickshire, UK.

    CNC Programmer Training

    ETG’s CNC programmer training courses explore the Fanuc, Siemens and Heidenhain programming function. Learn about how to program your part and how to use your machine without the use of CAD/CAM. The course is classroom-based with the latest virtual technology software to represent your machine in house.

    CNC Operator Training

    CNC operator training gives you the confidence of being able to run your machine without looking for help. One of our experienced technical engineers will guide you through every aspect of your machine. From tool changing, setting up work holding to running a complete component, full sequence and all the steps needed for this process.

    At ETG, we have moved beyond simply supplying machining equipment, to providing full turnkey machining solutions, a critical element of which is training. We are able to equip our clients with all the skills they require to realise optimum return on their investments.

    Under this, we ensure clients are adequately trained to make the most of everything from software to machinery, utilising our state-of-the-art, dedicated facilities to provide applicable and real-life training. Learning can be tailored to the specific needs of a company, in addition to a suite of developed courses.

    Supporting us in this portfolio of advanced training, are our industry-leading technical partners, whose products and expertise have been made available to aid clients in their processes.

    In addition to client training services, ETG is partnered with In-Comm to provide apprenticeship training to the next generation of engineers, investing in the future of the industry. In-Comm is one of only a few providers to be rated ‘Ofsted Outstanding’ and ETG is proud to maintain our forward-looking relationship with them.


    Through In-Comm, ETG is investing in the future of engineering and making important steps to bridge the skills gap as the industry advances and Britain maintains a prominent position within it.

    Future engineers are trained using the most advanced machines and technology available and are provided with the chance to apply their theory on live manufacturing projects, putting them ahead of their peers completing conventional courses.

    Apprentices are also provided with the opportunity to progress to degree level, without the need to undertake the financial burden of university study.


    In order for the manufacturing sector in the UK to remain a leader, upskilling is vital. Engineers must be kept abreast of the latest developments and given the opportunity to develop their existing skill bases.

    With this in mind, ETG is committed to providing continuous upskilling for our long-term clients. This is provided both in-house through our advanced facilities or on client sites, and through our partnership with In-Comm.

    All training is supported by our technical partners, enabling learners to utilise the very best the industry has to offer.
