“SMCC’s Manufacturing Technician Training not only allowed me to discover my passion for machining, it also taught me valuable skills and landed me a job and an apprenticeship at Bath Iron Works. I now apply those skills every day in my job at BIW working on mills, lathes, CNC machines and other inside machining tools. I’m also now on track to earn a college degree and am confident I have a bright future at SMCC.”Deliah Schreiber, Program Participant
