Program Overview

Earn a credential that employers respect

Students go a long way in just 30 weeks, learning the most current practices in precision machining while earning a credential that employers respect.

Industry-standard facilities and equipment

Sheridan's unsurpassed tool and die training facilities feature the most current, sophisticated machinery, including Computer Numerical Control (CNC) equipment – the same industry-standard equipment you'll use in the workplace.

Transfer opportunities

Your Mechanical Techniques – Tool and Die Maker certificate may qualify you to progress into the more advanced program, Mechanical Technician – Tool Making. You must successfully complete the certificate program to be eligible to transfer to the diploma apprenticeship program. You may also choose to continue your education in related Technician and Technology diploma programs at Sheridan.

Additional information

The emergence of new technologies and industries hasn't lowered the demand for workers in traditional trades such as tool and die making and general machining. But skilled trades people do require new skills for the 21st century – and the Sheridan Mechanical Techniques–Tool and Die program prepares students for that challenge.

Students also learn how to conduct a job search, maintain proper work documentation, and communicate effectively on the job. Sheridan’s instructors have years of experience as practicing tool and die makers and general machinists. They’ll serve as mentors and career coaches long after you've graduated.

Advanced standing will be granted for equivalent courses.

Explore your future classroom

As a student in our Mechanical Techniques – Tool and Die Maker program you’ll work in labs designed to imitate the real-world workplace. Want a sneak preview? Take a virtual tour of our Millwright Lab and our Machine Shop Lab.
