Meet Roger Linares
Roger Linares, a 50-year old resident of Carson, enrolled in the Aero-Flex Pre-Apprenticeship during the Summer of 2022 while attending El Camino College. With some experience as a CNC machine operator and programmer, he hoped the internship program offered by Northrop Grumman and the College’s Machine Tool Technology program would help him secure a long-term work position.
During the program, he completed Blueprint for Workplace Success and technical skills training and excelled during his Northrop Grumman internship. Upon completion, he was hired by Northrop Grumman as an Aero-Flex apprentice sponsored by El Camino College. He was also enrolled in the On-the-Job training program provided by the SBWIB.
Roger is expected to obtain his Associates degree by the end of 2022.
