For those of you out there that are doing menial jobs or jobs that you personally cant stand or like, there is quite an immediate demand of quality “technicians & engineers” throughout the United States and Canada.. I picked up on this a few years back and there is Some great resources that one could take and gain all the knowledge needed to solidify a job that pays upwards of $20/hr or more....
OFten times degrees are not required, as work experience (primarily projects worked on) is all that these employers are seeking for. They just want to make sure you know the lingo and the overall framework (not so much specificities).



To begin with I immersed myself with these modules, and then found ample examples of the most important thing in Quality Control (at the basic Plant and manufacturing site level) which is called a PPAP’s (production part approval process) and such on google. Here are two great primers that you just need to get started...


Introduction to Quality Management | Udemy
Quality Systems, Models and Theories | Udemy


more importantly, having a theoretical knowledge of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing is even better (as you will get paid more and read prints when inspecting assembly parts etc) and these YouTube Channel does the best job period. (No need to go to community college and spend 100s of $$ for this stuff)

GD&T Basics


With these under your belt and some time spent on google researching the ever so changing methodologies and industry standards in automotive, aerospace, (x, y, z sectors) you should have no problem at all. If anyone needs help interview wise or resume wise please feel free to PM me.

This line of work may not be your ideal career path, but it will pay a lot more, and will get you more in less time then it would be if you were working menial jobs...

Good resources!
I'm thinking these might help should I visit oversea factories or run into product or supplier related issues. Good to know both sides of the coin even if I am no manufacturer.
Thanks!

Interesting points, thanks for sharing.

Just curious (in a friendly way btw), has this approach helped you or anyone you know land a job?

Yes this has helped me many times and others. I am situated in an area where it is mostly temp work (manufacturing high TO’s etc) but word spreads out and people started getting hold of me for consultancy now. I helped a pastor friend that was working during the night at a plant (because he devotes his day times running and establishing his ministry) get a job as a QAS (quality assurance specialist) and he enjoys it thus far.

Every company is different and should have some sort of respectable figure or training... Expecting someone to know all the machines, programs etc is ludicrous. Although that is changing... companies dont care about training and expect qualified people to just magically appear. Which is why manufacturing is slowly coming back to regions of the USA... they thought the cheap Labor in skilled trades like machining, welding could be easily outsourced, but they got hit hard with back end sunk costs and wastage.... Manufacturing from 2002-2013 was like “ill save $0.05 now” (but in all actuality they spent $50.00 down the road)...

Yes absolutely. I have many more info and insight if you need any assistance when it comes to all things manufacturing (i.e what to watch out for, etc etc) to ensure less hassle and stress and more importance on presence. (If you know the lingo and jargon and ask and stand your ground, it will be very difficult to get taken advantage of or played)
