We can help you fill many of your entry-level manufacturing positions. Our job seeker training programs are industry-driven and focus on computer numerical control (CNC), welding, and press brake. Our Careers in Manufacturing program provides free job training and placement services in the manufacturing sector for people age 18 and older.

Because our programs are open enrollment/open exit, you don't have to wait until graduation to hire from us. We have trainees ready to start a job year round. Our training programs simulate a manufacturing workplace environment; for example, our strict attendance policy ensures everyone is on time, every day. The classroom is modeled like a shop floor, with shift supervisors, peer learning, teamwork, and leadership development. Lessons are project based, and trainees graduate with credentials from NIMS or AWS.
