Become an Apprentice

“In an apprenticeship, you learn a lot more than in an internship because you’re learning an entire career. A lot of the concepts in CLC’s machine tool trades program are similar to what I encounter on the job. And the idea that I have a job waiting for me is definitely comforting."

— Jokym Pebenito, CNC operator at LMT Onsrud LP and a CLC apprentice
