Technology & Manufacturing Association’s Jack Krikorian is featured in a story explaining in detail the “gold standard” career training students receive when attending the Association’s classes.

The story at Daily Herald website :

A one-time student of TMA, Jack Krikorian, is the Association’s Director of Curriculum and Instruction. Krikorian came to TMA seven years ago after a 30-year career in manufacturing and immediately set about modernizing the course curriculum. He was instrumental in establishing CNC instruction, which wasn’t offered at the time. With the purchase of two CNC machines, the program’s popularity took off and not long afterward Krikorian introduced Mastercam® CAD/CAM software (CNC Software, Inc., Tolland CT) into the advanced training offerings.

It’s important to Krikorian that his coursework keeps students engaged — especially because they typically attend classes at TMA after having completed a full workday.

“We have students that are starting work at 6 o’clock in the morning, working until 4 or 5 o’clock, and then coming here in the evenings. I try to keep the curriculum as exciting as I can. I can’t have them just sitting on their butts or they’ll fall asleep,” joked Krikorian.
