10-day program begins July 11; graduates also have opportunity to interview with major company

Arizona is quickly becoming the global leader in the semiconductor industry and Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC) wants so badly to put you in one of these high-paying, high-tech jobs that it will reimburse you at least $270 — the in-state tuition cost — if you complete its Semiconductor Technician Quick Start training program.

The Semiconductor Technician Quick Start is an intense, 10-day program designed to prepare you for an entry-level technician job in a semiconductor, or microchip, manufacturing facility. That could include performing inspections and conducting experiments on products, collecting data, performing analyses, evaluating products to verify they meet standards, maintaining and calibrating production equipment, or troubleshooting. Entry-level technicians typically start at $20 to $25 per hour depending on experience.
