The Alpena Community College TAACCCT grant finished a weeklong manufacturing boot camp this past Friday. Thirteen participants were immersed in manufacturing processes including CAD, welding, and CNC machining and used these skills to design and manufacture a clock that they were able to take home. Several local manufacturing businesses participated in the boot camp by presenting to the group and allowing tours of their manufacturing facilities. Michigan Works! provided a workshop on resume writing, interview tips, and job search strategies. On Friday, participants had the opportunity to interview with local manufacturing businesses.
