Meet Emma. She decided to try Cosmetology at the suggestion of her hairstylist.
After being homeschooled by her Mom and attending UW-FDL and UW-Washingon County for general education classes, she thought, “why not.”
Emma then started her cosmetology career here at Moraine Park in January 2017. Emma has already been hired as a receptionist at Lavish Salon and Spa in Mayville. She plans on taking her boards along with her classmates on Nov. 6, 2017 so she is ready to start working on clients as soon as she graduates in December 2017.
As Moraine Park‘s Medical Laboratory Technician program director, I am so happy to annouce that this year’s program graduates have all passed the National ASCP Certification Exam. While I was certain that this would be the case because the students in this class were exceptional, it is always great to see the data! I am confident that these students will enjoy a long career in laboratory medicine!
Many schools claim to provide real-life experiences, but it is unusual when a class project leads to a job.
Moraine Park’s Associate of Science in Accounting degree provides a career preparation project within Accounting 3. Students create a professional résumé and cover letter and practice interviewing skills based on an actual job posting.
Initially, student Allysa Larsen picked a general accounting position. Eventually, she decided to a select a position that better matched her goals.
Moraine Park sent students from the CNC/Tool & Die club and the Electricity club to the State Skills USA competition in late April. The CNC/Tool & Die students competed as a team in the Automated Manufacturing Technology category while the Electricity students competed as individuals in the Industrial Motor Control or Residential Wiring categories.
Moraine Park had students take all 3 top spots in Industrial Motor Control. Zach Heberer placed 1st, Jacob Stamm placed 2nd and Ramon Cruz-Nagera placed third.
The Moraine Park Technical College FDL Student Nurses Association hosted their second biannual Healthcare Career Fair recently, featuring 11 local employers, 8 continuing education universities, MPTC counselors, and SNA booth with candy bar and t-shirt sales!
There was even a booth to visit for fun entitled “Looking your best for the interview.”
Christina Kreuser completed the requirements for the Medical Assisting Program in January 2017. She started her job as a medical assistant in February 2017. Christina recently shared the following information about her experience.
