Detroit Machine Tools – Training Programs
As part of our commitment of support to DMT machine owners and operators, we offer training programs for both our CNC Lathes and CNC Mills and also for our manual 3-in-1 machines. (The free training included with the purchase of a CNC machine is only provided at our location in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.)
Schedule for Training Classes
Class Location: Detroit Machine Tools Headquarters - 170 Aprill Dr. Ann Arbor, MI 48103
April 8, 2017 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM
