Meet Miguel Rodriguez
After taking a number of classes at Santa Monica College, Miguel Rodriguez was hired by Bachem Americas in Torrance to be one of their first apprentices in the SBWIB’s Bio-Production Technician apprenticeship. After a year of hard work completing classes at West Los Angeles College and learning on the job, Miguel completed his Bio-Flex apprenticeship in July and received a wage increase and a certificate of completion from the U.S. DOL.
“Working at Bachem has been an awesome experience. I got to collaborate with some intelligent people, learn some remarkable things, and explore what a scientific profession could look like. Completing this apprenticeship has given me the confidence to further pursue my academic career in the field of biochemistry and valuable skills that will most definitely help me advance in this line of work.”
