It really depends on two things, where you are located and what you are capable of doing.

Thanks.

Is this something can be apprenticed or do I need to go to school for this?


There are plenty of places that will hook you up with an apprenticeship. But it is harder going that route and with an academic environment you would be exposed to a wider variety of machining techniques.

Can you support yourself off student loans and a part time job?

I think that's what I want to do.

I'll be using the GI bill and I work full time.

Going to a community college for a couple of years for a degree or tech certs for machining is far less expensive than going to state universities. Find the best program for you.

Most community colleges understand that adults need to work in order to survive, so you should be able to get a schedule that fits you.

I plan on doing a two year program.

The problem right now is I am working 60 hours a week.

I'm trying to situate my life in a way that works with going to school but it's increasingly difficult.

Talk to the counselors. You should be able to knock out a lot of requirements online.

Also, talk to your management and get them on board. The more information they have the better they can accommodate you. If they refuse, start looking for another job.

Look to see if you qualify for pel grants to help pay for things while you're in school.
