betatron logo“Betatron Electronics has been fortunate to be able to partner with NM Workforce Connection to partially defray the costs of training our employees. This is an invaluable program that our company has used many times now. Training is costly, not only in the expense of classes, but also the time/payroll needed to complete the courses.  There have been instances where we would not have been able to enroll in the classes without the assistance of this gracious program.

This latest training program has certified our employees in X-Ray operation. This will allow us to put a new process into operation. In turn we will now be able to bid on projects that require the specific operation. We firmly project that our sales volume and workload will increase and that will follow with the hiring of more highly trained personnel. Again, this could not have been possible without the cooperation of this program and the NM Workforce Connection. Thank you for your support."
