Robotics and Automation Training Success Stories

“I signed up for the QTT program not really knowing what to expect, but after six weeks I am grateful to the QTT team at MWCC for giving me the opportunity for further advancement. They gave me the confidence to be successful in the quality manufacturing field by bringing in substantial life experience to the classroom.” – Francesca

“After finding myself suddenly unemployed and not sure which direction to take my career, I found Briana Pena at a job fair and found my way back to MWCC. I enrolled in both the Automation Technology Training and Quality Technician Training certificate programs. Because of the knowledgeable and caring instructors and the MWCC team as a whole that I have become so inspired for my future that I have enrolled in the Manufacturing Technology certificate program and started taking credit classes at night.” – Heather
