NH Work-Based Learning Story
Apprentice: Tristan Chicoine
Location: Wire Belt Company of America in Londonderry, NH
Community College: Nashua Community College
This is Tristan,
an apprentice at Wire Belt in the ApprenticeshipNH program, which provides an affordable way for students to obtain an education while learning on the job. This is his NH work-based learning story.
In high school, Tristan didn’t know what he wanted to do after graduation. In his junior year, he attended a Career and Technical Education (CTE) presentation at the Manchester School of Technology.
During high school, he interned at Wire Belt and was enrolled in the Precision Manufacturing Program at Nashua Community College.
Tristan’s on-the-job training gave him an advantage in his classes and helped him pay for his education.
Now, he is working toward finishing his CNC operator apprenticeship at Wire Belt.
