Welding ● Machining ● Engineering ● Production ● Quality ● Business More   

Participants experience a 3-week program that covers all aspects of production and manufacturing.  We deliver an intensive team-based opportunity that lets them understand the inner workings of the business, production, operations, sales, and more.

From start to finish, we cover it all. 


Explore Careers in Engineering, Welding, Machining, Design, and More!

When we think of manufacturing, we often think of only one or two things - depending on our familiarity with the industry. There are fabrication, design, engineering, sales, raw materials, quality, shipping, business support, management, operations, and more.   

What if you could have a chance to "try it out" to see if you like it?


Our goal is to give you an immersive exposure to manufacturing. We won't make you welders, machinists, or managers. But we will give you a chance to try it all out...see if you like it.
