Training Program Is a Digital Manufacturing Game-Changer for CNC Apprentice

“I was sitting there putting stuff in a box and I knew that I was capable of more than that. I just never had a clear path on how to get there.”

Jesse Navarro Jr.’s career once was a series of low-wage manufacturing jobs, manning assembly lines and performing tasks such as bottling soap and detergent. When he began his journey in manufacturing, he joined the apprenticeship program at College of Lake County, a program MxD helped fund through a grant from the SIEMENS FOUNDATION and expanded his expertise into the world of digital manufacturing.
