M2K Spotlight
Before joining the M2K program, Christian worked as an assistant for a photography company. Some of his family worked in the machining industry, and Christian had an interest. He wanted to work in a field that would challenge him and allow him to use his math skills. After doing some research, he discovered NCC’s training program and applied.
“M2K is a wonderful program that offers free training for not just a job, but a career,” Christian said. “I really enjoyed the CNC training M2K offered. Several shops are using CNC machines, and it is something I would like to continue to use and learn down the road.”
In December, Christian accepted a CNC machinist position at a local company. He hopes to continue to grow professionally and is interested in joining an apprenticeship program.
