You’re smart, career-oriented, and ready for a well-paying career right now. With the TX FAME Lone Star Chapter, you can dive into a challenging advanced manufacturing career while receiving the education needed to build your resume and make you highly marketable to manufacturers across the state.
Once you’re accepted into the TX FAME Lone Star Chapter, you will begin work on a combination education/training program with Texas State Technical College to earn an associate degree as an Advanced Manufacturing Technician (AMT). During the week, you will attend classes at the Central Texas Technology Center and work for a local employer – all while being paid a competitive wage for your work.
