This boot camp is designed to give high school students the skills needed to start a career as a CNC Operator upon graduating high school. Here are the benefits of this unique program:
The program is a partnership between the Southeast Wisconsin Workforce Development Board, Gateway Technical College and local employers from Racine and Kenosha counties. All partners work together to help students successfully reach program goals.
There is no cost to the student as the program is funded locally by grants. SC Johnson has generously provided funding that covers tuition, books, and any additional materials the student may need. No additional financial aid is necessary.
The boot camp consists of 16 Gateway Technical College credits taught by qualified instructors with extensive manufacturing experience. Some credits may also count toward a student's graduation requirement.
Students will work with a workforce coach and participate in workshops that focus on skills and habits required to be successful on the job. Each student will also receive a mentor from a local company. The final segment of the boot camp is a paid work experience with their mentor.
The curriculum that we offer for the CNC High School Boot Camp is the same one we offer for our regular CNC Boot Camp. Here are the courses that are included:
