ACE Program: Begin Your Career in Seven Months

Michael Carlos

“I originally started the ACE program with the intent to work as a maintenance mechanic for amusement parks. After having the privilege to view employer presentations, the program has opened my eyes to manufacturing opportunities. Taking many courses in a short period of time can be challenging, but I stay focused and motivated, which allows me to overcome any obstacle. Norco College has a great friendly staff, who's always willing to help.”

-Michael Carlos, ACE Program student
