âImplementing digital technology is not a technical challenge; there is excellent equipment out there. Scanners work, software works, output devices work. Itâs a culture change youâre going to struggle with. As soon as you bring in a scanner, technicians think theyâre going to lose their jobs. You need to get them to understand that it doesnât eliminate jobs or take away the heart and soul of what we do. Itâs giving us the tools to do things in a way weâve never done them before.â

I started...See more out as a waxer, but after a few years in the industry I developed problems with my hands that was threatening to end my career in the field. I was very fortunate to be able to transition into CAD/CAM when I did. I had thought (briefly) about pursuing a CDT in C&B, but I also have metal allergies, which has kept me away from ever attempting to metal finish.
If a CAD/CAM CDT were an option, I guarantee you I'd be all over it. I have a few vendor-specific certifications, but I feel like I'll eventually hit a ceiling. It would be nice to have something more universal to express my qualifications, that would be recognizable across the board.
