10 SMT007 MAGAZINE I MAY 2023 I've dedicated my career to facilitating the health and growth of the electronics manu- facturing industry. In this interview with Jim Flis, a boot camp instructor at Nashua Com- munity College, we discuss a successful and growing effort to provide the next generation of electronics manufacturing staff with the foundation they'll need to carry the indus- try into the future. Jim took over the boot camp program about five years ago and is quite proud of the students and what they've accomplished. Jim, what can you tell us about your own background, and how your boot camps fit into the overall mission of NCC? I have a bachelor of science degree in elec- tronics engineering technology, and worked as a principle hardware engineer for Digital Equipment Corporation. My primar y work was in the field of data communications (ter- minals, Ethernet, voice and modems) and TEMPEST work for DEC's government group. Upon leaving that field, I began work- ing with youth groups, substitute teaching, and as a para-educator in our public school system. N C C i s located in southern New Hamp- shire on a campus that was first built in 1970.
