Learned the basics of manual and CNC machining like any school. The teachers were also experienced, skilled and knowledgeable about the industry (and extremely well respected locally). They passed along all they could in a two year course. Job placement is a non issue after this training.

I am so excited about this field of work. I have been in this field since 1984. I love people and this makes the work of a Pastor Chaplain so much more rewarding. Those families even my immediate family benefit from counseling and services. Simply rewarding to see and know how people are being assisted and helped.
