The apprentice training area is a fully equipped machine shop dedicated to apprentice training to allow the apprentice to practice and improve their skills in the safety of a training environment. Laron Inc. also has a dedicated classroom and a computer lab instructed by George, who puts all of the Apprentice thru rigorous classwork and testing.

This direct access to real-world problems provides the perfect platform to test their abilities as the journeymen they have become, as well as establish the safety and quality that Laron provides company wide.

Laron Apprentice Machinists received a pair of certificates, one from the State of Arizona and the other from the Department of Labor, each recognizing them as journeymen in their craft in addition to a journeyman machinist card.
