From Our Graduates
"The instructors were knowledgeable and eager to help you learn. Tom (instructor) even helped me on is own time. The location and hours were convenient and I started working before I graduated."
- Eric M.



"I was doing maintenance work at a campground when I heard about the training on the radio, I applied and I really liked the idea of learning in an actual machine shop. It's much better than just a school classroom situation. The instructors made it fun but still explained the information well. I was hired while I was still in training and made full time after graduation."
-Chuck N.



"At first I liked CITC because they had a good reputation and the training was only four months. Once I was a student the fact that it was IN a machine shop was awesome. Bottom line on the instructors is they made sometimes difficult things easy to understand. Both my instructors helped and tutored me."
-Dave T.



"I graduated from CITC in 2006. A job counselor had recommended the program. While I had some experience with manual machines, CNC training was what I really needed to advance my earning potential. The fact that the training was conducted in a working CNC machine shop made it easier to see the machines running actual jobs versus simply seeing everything on a board in a classroom. The instructors really cared about the student and made sure I was comfortable before walking up to the machine controls. The bottom line is, after graduation and a short internship, I was hired immediately."
-Tim B.



"I was referred to CITC through Lake County One Stop and visited other schools as well. But CITC was only a 4-month program and it was an advantage that the training was in an actual machine shop. It allowed me to see exactly what would be expected once I was working in the CNC field. I started my job search with help from the school about a month before graduation and started my new job a week after graduation. The instructors were there to assist me in any way possible."
-Fred P.



"Instead of just grabbing another dead-end job, I visited CITC. Kurt (instructor) has a passion for CNC which spills over to the student. He was patient and understanding. School administrators were very encouraging. I received a job offer from Norman Noble two days before graduation and started my new career a week later."
-Erika J.



"Learning in an actual machine shop makes comprehension more easy. I like learning in a real life machine situation. It boosted my confidence in running the CNC machine in the real world. The instructors are good. They took their time with each student, to teach and to make sure that students understand the subject matter. They even take extra time out to re-visit any topic that the students may have problems with on the "open" Fridays, this really helps! Three weeks after graduation I started my new career in the CNC field."
-Richard I.



"I really appreciate the effort on your behalf with the help. CITC was one of the best decisions I've made in a long time. I am really thankful for everything."
-Mike R.



"I just wanted to thank you for finding me my job at Babcock and Wilcox. As of Monday I was promoted to NC programmer and will hope-fully be working as a process engineer in the near future. I would have never had this opportunity without your course and job placement assistance. Thank you!
-Micah A.



"I heard about CITC from the Employment Connection in Lorain County. Class size and flexible schedule of the class was my deciding factor. I was hired before I graduated from the course. Kurt (my in-structor) was awesome, he would go above and beyond to help you with any difficulty you would have. The course is outstanding because you are able to apply what you learned in the classroom on the machines in the shop."
-Art S.
 


From Employers
"We at Presrite Corporation consider Cleveland Industrial Training Center to be one of our most valuable resources when it comes to finding well-trained CNC personnel. The training staff at CITC has always been accommodating to our needs when it comes to meeting our staffing requirements. As a Human Resources professional, I personally like the unique blend they offer to their students when it comes to instructing both the technical aspects of the job as well as soft skills training.

Not only have we successfully hired a number of their graduates, but we have also recommended their training program to several of our current employees.

The CNC training program at Cleveland Industrial Training Center is working for Presrite and the partnership we have build together has afforded us the opportunity to keep up with the current demand for skill labor.

To all the staff at CITC...keep up the good work!"
-George Prucha/Director of Human Resources , Presrite Corp.



"The Cleveland Industrial Training Center is one of the best resources for Cleveland's manufacturing talent. I actually think it's an untapped resource. Some of our top employees have come from CITC and their training has prepared them well. They show upon the first day able to read blueprints, read and use micrometers, and understand basic machining principles. With the addition of their CNC Swiss Machine Operator Training class, CITC will continue to be our first stop when searching for qualified individuals."
-Adam Gent/President, The Gent Machine Co.




"The Eaton Corporation Euclid facility contracted with the Cleveland Industrial Training Center to perform CNC training with employees who had minimal or no CNC experience. After the completion of their 40 hour training session, the students learned the skills to perform basic set-ups on both mills and lathes, set tooling, and G-code programming. These students now have the skills to fill internal job openings as entry level machinists. I would highly recommend C.I.T.C. and their staff for any of the Industrial Training courses that they currently offer."
-Ken Kovalchik, Eaton Corporation




"I would recommend this training (CNC Fanuc troubleshooting, Ladder logic) for all my maintenance employees."
-Edward Thomas, Maintenance Supervisor, Joy Mining Corporation
