CNC Student Story

Timothy Rehse - CNC Success StoryTim Rehse – Coming Full Circle

Tim Rehse decided to participate in the CNC boot camp after the field of work he was in experienced a decline in jobs and decreasing pay. Having worked for many years in the truck parts industry, Rehse had reached the point where he needed to leave the sales end of the business. “It was time for a career change,” said Rehse, “That’s not an easy decision to make at any age.”

Rehse had once worked in a machine shop, but the CNC concept was new to him as the technology has evolved.  According to Rehse, “Back then, it was difficult to get the training to operate the new machines without having lots of experience.”  Rehse is pleased with the amount of training and preparation the boot camp provides that will enable him to gain employment as a CNC operator once he has completed the program.  “I look forward to steady employment in a growing, in-demand field of work,” said Rehse.

Of his boot camp experience Rehse commented, “The instructors are great and the courses are demanding. The instructors make you learn the material, and I enjoy it. It’s definitely a challenge and it’s something different and I like learning new things.”

His advice for anyone considering the boot camp is, “You have to want it and be willing to work at it. You will get out what you put in, and it’s not something that just comes easily.”
