One of the main reasons for our 100% job placement rate is our close relationship with regional employers like Santa Cruz Seaside Company, GraniteRock, Moss Landing Boat Works, California Giant Berry Farms, and more.
For example, we have numerous former students earning a Santa Cruz county living wage while working for GraniteRock in positions ranging from Team Lead to Welder Fabricator.
The Welding department has long offered what we call a "new-hire guarantee." This means that a new hire from our program will be billable and productive on day one of their new job. Along with this guarantee comes one year of free technical support for any welding student that is newly employed.
