Those participating in the 1-day workshop are then invited to attend a 2-week Manufacturing Skills Bootcamp! The 2-Week Bootcamp consists of multiple hands-on projects, blueprint and measurement reading, intro to soldering, attending tours of local manufacturers and obtaining an OSHA Safety Certificate. Participants also learn "soft skills" such as how to prepare for job interviews.
