“With an industry that needs qualified techs so badly, we can’t afford to lose the ones we have because it’s too difficult to find a job," she said. "We need to take care of our people, treat them well, and that starts by training these students, so they have the knowledge and ability to get hired in entry-level positions.

 

"Then, the facilities must treat them well enough that they want to stay. If everyone does their part, it works for the entire industry.”
