Are you struggling to figure out your next step? Or searching for a high-demand field with a variety of career paths? If so, here’s three reasons why Moraine Park’s gas utility construction and service program may be the right choice for you:
Moraine Park Technical College trade apprentices had an impressive showing recently at the Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) of Wisconsin Skill Competition. The event, held in West Bend, featured two Moraine Park students winning championships and qualifying for nationals, as well as the College earning a complete sweep of the state carpentry podium.
As we begin to look at options for a career, we may consider education, maybe on-the-job training, or self-study and activity, to prepare for a particular career of choice. There are many options available for the varying careers. One career field that sometimes is overlooked is related to water quality and water management. There are many career options in the water quality and water management fields. Becoming a professional in this career field can include formal education, on-the-job training, and even self- study. There are many paths into this interesting, highly-rewarding, sustainable, and dynamic career field.
An option that may be of interest to many people looking into careers in the field, is an Associate Degree in Water Quality Technology from Moraine Park Technical College. Moraine Park’s program is an accredited degree offered in an online format. Today as more positions are opening and available throughout the U.S. and abroad, an online program may be the right choice for students.
Members of Moraine Park’s EDGE Progam toured MSOE in Milwaukee on Monday, Dec. 4, learning how their current programs might transfer into a bachelor’s degree there. Experiencing the different feel of a city campus, and having the chance to see the engineering labs available at MSOE was exciting for those in attendance!
Do you hate math? Does math scare you? Have you ever wanted to try something but found out math was involved and decided you’d try something else? Are you afraid to try a college program because you think your math skills aren’t good enough to get you through?
Students at Moraine Park had the opportunity to participate in the Ideal Tool Competition earlier this semester. The competition showcases individuals who can use tools in the electricity field the quickest. This competition is held in various cities across the country with professional and student categories.
The growing opportunities in Wisconsin’s energy industry were the focus of a special event at Moraine Park Technical College on Thursday.
Area students were given a chance to get “hands on” with technical college students and instructors in an energy career preview day at the College’s Beaver Dam campus. The event also was punctuated with a special “Careers in Energy Kickoff” ceremony.
After placing 1st during State Skills USA Competitions earlier in the year, Moraine Park students had the opportunity to compete in the National Skills USA competition held in Kentucky in June. Zach Heberer competed in Industrial Motor Control and Paul Langenecker competed in Residential Wiring.
Both of Moraine Park’s students did extremely well during the National Skills USA Competition. Zach Heberer placed 6th out of 21 students in the Industrial Motor Control competition and Paul Langenecker placed 17th out of 29 in the Residential Wiring competition.
The school year is flying by and many around the State of Wisconsin are preparing and studying for water and wastewater operator certification exams. The exams are held in November and May.
As I teach many of the prospective operators in both disciplines, a subject that comes to mind is related to mathematics. Math is used in many career areas, and the same applies to the water and wastewater industries. When preparing for the exam, math will be worth reviewing and understanding. With today’s spreadsheets, hidden formulas, automated recording and other tools utilizing our various technologies, math behind the scenes is sometimes a forgotten skill.
But I will share a couple of stories with you that identifies the need to recall and utilize this skill. The good news is that Moraine Park Technical College’s Water Quality Technology program and water operator certification preparatory courses cover the operator related math and formulas well.
