Uniquely Abled Academy Open House in Partnership with the College of the Canyons

A CNC MACHINING PROGRAM FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH HIGH FUNCTIONING AUTISM 

A New Way of Thinking

The manufacturing industry is rapidly growing and in continual need of skilled CNC machinists. The Uniquely Abled Academy (UAA) is designed to collaborate with the community college and the local communities to prepare uniquely abled students to attain the technical skills needed to enter into a career as a CNC machinist.

THE BENEFITS OF HIRING THE UNIQUELY ABLED WORKFORCE

UAA in partnership with College of the Canyons’ CNC Machining Program will recruit, screen and train students to be ready for entry level machining.

The UAA CNC graduates will be workers who are:

• Dependable

• Engaged

• Motivated

Past performance has shown UAA employees have strong work ethics such as:

• Tenure longevity

• Great attendance

• Attention to Work Quality

• High Productivity

Ken Wiseman, a local business owner who started hiring uniquely abled individuals 7 years ago, shares that this was a great decision in AMS to support the local munity and bring emphasis to the company’s mission statement of seeking balance between their efforts to support their customer, organization, community and self: 

“I would say these employees have brought joy to our culture, have exemplary attendance, are enthused about their job responsibilities, and often seek to excel at meeting management objectives in terms of productivity.” 

Björn N.P. Paulsson, CEO & President of Paulsson, Inc. said, 

“In five months, our staff hired from the Uniquely Abled Academy have become critical members of our CNC operator team, machining some of the most difficult metals in the industry.” 

Susan Solebello, Human Resource Generalist at Mulgrew Aircraft Components, Inc., shared with regards to hiring the uniquely abled.
