Cost

Variables that Affect Cost:

There are three variables that affect cost. The first is to what extent you wish to train the students. If you wish to introduce them to CNC, they could complete Levels 1 and 2. By completing Levels 1, 2 and 3 they can become a qualified Operator. Adding Level 4 qualifies them as a Setup / Operator. By completing all 5 Levels, they would be qualified as a Setup / Programmer in most shops.

The second variable is the number of individuals you have signed up for the course at any time. The more trainees you have, the less costly it will be for each one.

The third variable is the number of CNC controls you have selected for each trainee. The more CNC controls a person is learning, the more modules of instruction they will receive and, therefore, the more it will cost.

Payment Plans:

You can select the Annual Subscription Plan or the Level Subscription Plan.

Annual Subscription Plan: You receive the materials at the lowest cost by paying in advance for a specific number of trainees for a one-year period of access. For example, most select the Core and one CNC control type for $696.00 per person for all five Levels. Trainees that receive additional CNC controls will be charged an additional fee of $80.00 per control type. Call 1-800-624-6968 for group rates.

Level Subscription Plan: You can purchase any of the 5 Levels for $160 per person with a single CNC control selection. This allows you to have your trainees begin at any appropriate level. Adding an additional CNC control is just $20 per Level per person.

How Does MasterTask Compare?

All MasterTask courses are developed using methods originating from research done at Florida State University for the US military called the ISD (Instructions Systems Development) process. It asssures you the course meets the performance objectives derived from extensive tasks analysis. That keeps the course from including topics such as the history of CNC or other material irrelevant to the job.

Many courses use an educational approach where a grade of 80% might be considered passing. If there are ten steps to a procedure, it is hard to imagine any two which are not important. MasterTask's 100% solution makes sure all the information is acquired. Most trainees can complete a module within an hour and that success builds confidence which speeds learning. What is learned and how well it is learned is fixed. The only variable is time.

Mastertask includes realistic simulations of the job tasks on the CNC control type selected for the trainee to learn including Fanuc, Haas, Mazak or Okuma. No other course offers this powerful learning tool.

Will it Pay?

One of the most effective and profitable uses of this course is the improvement of existing operators. The success of Lean Manufacturing, Continuous Improvement and ISO certification will make these courses an important part of management's competitive strategy. You will produce rapid reductions in scrap, rework, tool damage, achieve faster setups, less downtime, and fewer costly mistakes.
