    Rj Link’s, John Oller, with TechWorks Instructor Gordi Blaisdell & Students

    Students from Rock Valley College’s Tech Works Program recently toured Rj Link International’s facility.  TechWorks is an employer-driven training organization that develops and delivers a customized curriculum to prepare people for a career in advanced manufacturing in just six to eight weeks.

    Some students that enter the program are new to the manufacturing field, and others are enrolled with a goal of continuing their education.  The small classroom size and the hands-on training enables the program to graduate highly employable individuals into the regional workforce.

    • Measurement Materials & Safety
    • CNC Lathe or Mill Operator Level One


    Students learn the skills necessary to enter the manufacturing environment at an entry level position with a solid foundation of shop math, blueprint interpretation, metrology and CNC setup/operation skills.
