Mastercam Educator Training Agenda
I would like to start by thanking Chris Goodman and his team at The University of Cincinnati Clermont for hosting our Educator’s training this year at their facility. We have a great agenda created to assist Teachers at all levels of Mastercam. I encourage Educators to sign up ASAP so we can gather some numbers and be prepared with all the content needed to support you. The office sent a signup sheet a few weeks ago along with pricing and list of topics you would like to review. If you would need another form sent please let the office know or sign up online. As the time gets closer to Class we will make sure we give more details on the room number and parking, so please make sure to give us an email or phone number that we can contact you during the summer. 419-425-2233 Office.
