Students at Northern Maine Community College's Precision Machining Program receive valuable real-world CNC experience and other manufacturing training.

Given the opportunity, manufacturers can greatly benefit from working with nearby community colleges. Companies both large and small can work closely with schools to determine the manufacturing industry’s foremost training needs and the schools can help recruit new talent. In addition, some schools, like Northern Maine Community College, produce lot sizes of 100 pieces or fewer for customers from all over the country; customers pay tooling, materials and shipping costs in return for labor at no charge. What benefits have you found working with community colleges?
