EARN WHILE YOU LEARN
CACO PACIFIC works through the National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA) and the State of California Division of Apprenticeship Standards to provide a well-rounded education and training experience.
Over the four year program, which includes both classroom instruction and on the job training, apprentices learn a variety of disciplines, including Conventional and CNC Milling, Turning, Surface Grinding, Cylindrical Grinding and Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM). Successful completion of the apprenticeship program can be a springboard to future growth opportunities.
Basic knowledge and experience with mill, lathe and grinding operations, shop math, print reading, inspection techniques and use of machinist hand tools and measuring equipment.
These basics can be obtained through community and/or industry training programs or through the equivalent experience in a moldmaking or precision machining shop environment.
