Transitions are challenging, but ICATT Apprenticeship Program graduates, like Nick Christensen, see the value in change. The recent graduate shares his experience transitioning from an ICATT Apprentice to a full-time Service Technician at Wisconsin-based Krones Inc.
Looking back at his apprenticeship training, Nick’s experience was very positive. “Krones is very supportive of the ICATT apprentices,” he said. “It really is a great place to work.”
Along with a supportive work environment, there are many benefits the recent grad encountered as an ICATT apprentice. Nick, along with all ICATT graduates, earned a debt-free associate degree and an industry-aligned, hands-on education. For the recent graduate, these benefits were ones that initially drew him to the program.
His role as a Service Technician at Krones allows him the flexibility of traveling. Service Technicians are responsible for troubleshooting repairs no matter where they are based, offering Nick the opportunity to experience new places, while getting paid to do so.
Being a full-time employee is far different from being an apprentice, but Nick is looking forward to the challenge. “I am very glad I made it this far and very happy I can continue to be a part of Krones,” he said.
