I chose Central Lakes College because it was close to home and the Machine Tool Technology Program is known for their great instructors and educational opportunities. The Machine Trades field has a lot of jobs and career opportunities available and allows me to be creative and to work with my hands. After I graduated in 2013, I was hired by Diamond Tool & Engineering in Bertha, MN as a Wire EDM Operator and CNC Machinist. And after only a year, I am being training to be the EDM Department Lead. The degree I earned prepared me well for this position.

I chose the Machine Tool Technology Program at Central Lakes College because it was close to home and I am able to get the diploma done in one year. It is a concentrated program and a lot of work in a short time, but it is giving me the basic foundation in all aspects of machine technology so I can go into any shop and pick up their processes quickly. When I complete this training, I will gain a promotion, a wage increase and increased responsibilities with my current employer.
