You did not say if that is like being a machinist. The are classes you can take to help you. Where you work they may have training as well. My brother in law was a robotics machinist and did VERY well. Good Luck.

It depends upon what type of machine you operate. There are careers in plastics operating machines where you can earn a good living. Most of these opportunities start by getting your foot in the door do a great job so when a job opening comes up they will look to train you.

The manager should train the person on how each different machine works and learn what to do when it breaks down

There are all types of different machines (CNC, Lathe, etc). There are machines that makes rare auto parts, USA auto parts, chocolate, toilet paper, furniture, etc... You get the picture. You learn one, you pretty much know them all. Learn all the machines in the shop. You grow by listening, paying attention, volunteering a hand, keeping your area clean, having patience, and always, safety first. If you don't know something, ask. Don't assume. That's how mistakes happen. Be sure to take notes, learn, absorb, and prove yourself. There are some employers in the machinist industry that will pay to further your education. If so, take advantage of it. It really does pay off. My ex husband was a machinist (Lord rest his soul). It's worth it. The pay is great when you have a background to follow. I hope that helps a little bit. But most and far most, follow your heart. Good Luck! Stay safe!
