The Beaver Dam Weld Club recently attended the Viva Las Vegas FAB Tech Expo which was held at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The trip was made possible through the generous donations received from industry leaders.
The students in our welding program at the Jackson campus recently toured Steel Craft Corp in Hartford. Meeting with us were Joe Rouse: Asst. Plant Manager, Kevin Nerat: Human Resourses, and Chad Sires: CWI/CWE.
Students gained a wealth of knowledge while touring the laser, fabrication, welding and paint departments. They saw firsthand that what they are learning in the classroom and lab, relates directly to what they will encounter in industry.
The Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Carpentry Apprentice classes at Moraine Park’s West Bend Campus are collaborating with the Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin to construct two “’Little Houses” for the James A. Peterson Veterans Village in Racine, Wis.
Moraine Park is hosting its 3rd Annual Jane of All Trades event on Wednesday, March 8. Jane is an event where women of any age* can come and learn about careers they may have never considered before (*Participants under the age of 16 should have a parent/guardian in attendance with them, of course!)
This is an amazing chance to get hands-on demonstrations in areas such as:
Demand for gas utility technicians is growing much faster in recent years than the supply of skilled workers, and Moraine Park Technical College – with generous help from Alliant Energy – is seeking to provide a state-of-the-art solution.
Moraine Park is developing a new Gas Utility Technician program at the College’s Beaver Dam campus, along with a cutting-edge, $2.3 million dollar Energy Education Center.
Alliant Energy has become a key contributor to this project, recently donating $80,000.
Life is busy. But there are affordable, convenient ways to start on a great career path!
One of those ways here at Moraine Park is our two-year Water Quality Technology Associate of Applied Science Degree program. This is an online program, so you can complete it in the comfort of your home, or where your computer takes you.
Devin Kissinger likes to fish, woodwork, do home improvement projects and … win national championships, too. He did the latter in Industrial Motor Control at the SkillsUSA national competition held June 23-24 in Louisville, Ky.
That was a culminating accomplishment after years of hard work for Devin.
Along this journey, Devin honed his skills at Moraine Park in my classroom, and I recently caught up with him to get his thoughts on his time here at Moraine Park, and to see if he had advice for anyone else considering a career in electricity.
Water Quality Technology is a satisfying career where you can help provide safe water to consumers, prevent disease, help protect the environment and maintain recreational waters for fishing and . . . well, much more!
Many job openings in this field are also projected over the next several years as graduates replace positions of retirees and facilities continue to expand.
And Moraine Park can help prepare you for these opportunities in a flexible, affordable environment. Don’t just take our word for it, though! Check out this story from one of our grads:
