Building our Workforce

Sharing what we do at Cameron Tool with our community is vital to building our workforce. We partner with area career centers, community colleges and universities to provide tours, job shadows, co-op experiences, internships and other opportunities in hope that students and job seekers will come to work for us. We “grow our own” workforce offering apprenticeship opportunities to employees that have shown good work ethic, reliablitiy and the desire to learn a trade as a CNC Machine Operator or Tool and Die Maker. Learning these skills will offer a career path that is creative, innovative, ever-changing, and a way to earn a good living.

Apprenticeship Opportunities

What is an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a combination of classroom instruction and supervised on-the-job training where a worker receives instruction to learn the aspects of a skilled trade such as a CNC Machinist or Tool and Die Maker. A four-year apprenticeship includes 8,000 work hours and a minimum of 576 classroom hours, but classroom hours are determined by the employer. Apprentices earn a wage while they are training and tuition assistance is provided for required classes. The wage increases as the apprentice gains more knowledge and work experience through structured training. At the completion of apprenticeship training, an apprentice receives a nationally recognized Certificate of Completion. Many choose to continue their education toward an associate’s degree and beyond. To apply for an apprenticeship, six months of employment with Cameron Tool is required. Applicants are interviewed by our Apprenticeship Committee and approval is determined based on the workers commitment to the apprenticeship program and Cameron Tool, enrollment in local community college, past performance and work ethic.
