Try getting to a vocationa/Technical school, preferably licensed by your state, also remember that
this is a shrinking industry in lieu of the nature of the economy at present.most employers
now prefer programmers than operators since the latter can program and also operator.However,
not to discourage your, try browsing the web for cnc operators and may be consider to visit
a work shop, and or potential employer to get a better insight.

tech school, participate(WIN)in SkillsUSA state competition. a top10 or better placement at the national level competition with put at the top of any/every employers list. Personally, as bad as the economy is, I've received a call from almost all jobs applied to within a day, and a few same day replies.
