ACE America's Cutting Edge
Whether you’re searching for your first job, seeking additional training or determining your next step after military service, ACE is helping prepare new and experienced workers for top manufacturing facilities across the country.
Through ACE, participants can receive online instruction and then complete hands-on, in-person training that supports a new career path—or advancement—in the machine tool industry for free. No prior experience or education in the field is required to enroll in the ACE computer numerical control (CNC) machining training program.
ACE is supported by the U.S. Department of Defense’s office of Innovation Capability and Modernization through its Industrial Base Analysis and Sustainment (IBAS) Program. ACE brings together the scientific expertise of the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), advanced training tools and techniques developed at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK), and the workforce development leadership of IACMI—The Composites Institute.
