Meet Noah Retallic, a 17 year-old Automation Technician Youth Apprentice through the Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee (AJAC).
Noah enrolled in the Youth Apprenticeship in Spring 2020 and immediately began his on-the-job training (OJT) at Ephrata Machinery in Ephrata, Washington—a rural community in Eastern Washington.
This fall, Noah will begin his apprenticeship classes through Columbia Basin Tech (credited via Big Bend Community College) while continuing his 2,000 hours of OJT.
Ephrata Machinery invited AJAC to their machine to tell Noah’s story on how he became involved in manufacturing and his desire to grow within the industry.
