Hurco’s Apprenticeship Program

Hurco North America will open applications for the third class of its apprenticeship program April 1, 2022. The Field Service Apprenticeship (FSA) is a two-year program that starts with a 12-week introduction to the industry that it says merges hands-on training and repair of CNC machines with classroom training.

While candidates with a degree or working toward one are encouraged to apply, candidates who are mechanically inclined with no industry or engineering experience are also encouraged to apply for the FSA. “We know there are people outside our industry who would excel at a career as a service engineer for machine tools, but might not have been exposed to our industry. We believe the FSA will be important to bridge the skills gap and introduce more people to the machine tool industry, which benefits the industry as a whole,” says Cory Miller, general manager Hurco North America.

Field service engineers will ultimately be ambassadors for Hurco Companies Inc., where they will provide technical support and training as well as service CNC machines at customers’ facilities across the country. Continuous training on emerging technologies in CNC controls, robot integration, five-axis machine and multi-spindle lathe installation, repair and applications will also be provided long after completion of the apprenticeship.

“If you have a strong work ethic, like to learn how things work, like hands-on training, and want a career instead of a job, this apprenticeship is for you,” says Mark Gilmore, service manager Hurco North America.

The FSA program takes place at Hurco’s headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana. To apply, visit
