64 MMS October 2017 CNC TECH TALK Columnist We offer a proficiency test that you can use as a star ting point for your own testing. Find the related files at that you can easily modify to suit your purposes. Our test is divided into three sections—general, machining center and turning center—and includes a series of multiple-choice and true/false ques- tions aimed at CNC setup workers and operators. Simply use test results to gauge a candidate's current proficiency level. If an applicant scores 90 percent, for instance, you can be about 90 percent sure that applicant has the experience he or she claims to have. Note that these physical tasks or tests should be administered only when an applicant claims to have experience. They will be of no value in evaluating an applicant who freely admits to not having such experience.
