DMACC staff members will assist student in obtaining an educational discounts for most popular tool brands, or they may use their own existing set if it meets ASSET requirement.

Student Wages

An advisory committee made up of community representatives from business, industry and/or labor will make recommendations on pay rates. Dealerships may wish to follow these recommendations or establish their own pay scale.

Generally, a dealership does not pay the student while he/she attends school. The sponsor does not buy the student's tools and they do not pay the student's tuition.
