A machining program in Oklahoma City is helping high school graduates land jobs in manufacturing and mechanics. 

The Francis Tuttle program is a one or two-year program offered to high school students as well as adults. 

News 9’s Barry Mangold got an inside look at the precision machining building with Instructor Kent Skinner to see students at work. 

“We’re teaching them how to be a machinist, how to be adults,” Skinner said. “We take somebody that knows nothing, we teach them how to measure parts, how to indicate parts, and how to produce a part. The end goal here is to get a job right out of school.”
