Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

During this period, Fullerton College continued to partner with businesses in the area. One of those partnerships was with the Disneyland Resort. The program, created through existing partnerships between the college and the Disney Machinists Union, consisted of full-credit courses taught on the main college campus in subjects ranging from Blueprint Reading to Automotive Fundamentals. In addition, program participants received hands-on training three days a week in departments such as Central Shops, Attraction Maintenance, and Transportation Services at the theme park. All participants received formal training supported by the International Association of Machinists (IAM), and upon completion of the program, were eligible to be hired at a higher pay if a regular or full-time position was available at the Disneyland Resort.
