Learn While You Earn

Is Manufacturing For Me?

Manufacturing might be the right career path for you if you:

    • Enjoy figuring out how things work
    • Like solving practical problems
    • Enjoy developing new techniques and products
    • Like taking things apart and putting them back together
    • Have an interest in making things- especially using technology, electronics, lasers and robots
    • Enjoy working in teams

Lack manufacturing skills and experience? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then our Learn While You Earn Sponsorship might be the opportunity you need to pursue a new career. At Westminster Tool, we hire for character, train for skill. That’s why our program focuses on giving you the foundational skills necessary to explore all the career pathways the manufacturing industry has to offer.

Learn While You Earn

We recognize that not everyone has the skills necessary to begin a career in manufacturing.

That’s why we have created the Learn While You Earn Sponsorship. The sponsorship provides self-motivated individuals with an opportunity to work part time at Westminster Tool while they attend  Quinebaug Valley Community College’s Advanced Manufacturing Program full time.

Learn While You Earn recipients get the latest training in advanced manufacturing foundation skills and can then apply those lessons hands-on. Our facility gives them exclusive access to develop these skills with our state-of-the-art equipment and manufacturing operations.

Upon completion of the certificate program with an average GPA of 3.0 or higher, the recipient will receive full tuition reimbursement, and the potential opportunity for full-time employment at Westminster Tool.
