I wrote a posting about this back in March because I believe that whoever helps train or re-train our county back into types of factories and/or manufacturing, it is a good thing.
Today this school has a $ 1 million start at this program.
This is a very good start.
I, of course am more interested in teaching building alternative energy programs however, a start is a start?
We must also be sure to be teaching with our eyes always towards the future.
By this I mean the even newer modern business needs skilled employee’s and modern manufacturers will need skilled welders, skilled Machinists and Fabricators. I bring this up at this time because I remember that, after I found out late in life
( I only had few months left of a ten year period of help)
because the military kept it a secret when I got out that I could get help with my schooling.
So I had only time to apply for and complete a through a mail course in Air conditioning technician because of a new job that I just started late 1970’s after Vietnam.
Point is that this course spent about 1/4 of the time testing on heat and air starting back with the pharaohs of Egypt from 4000 B C. until today.
Being a history buff I enjoyed this part of the program plus it helped me through my testing however, new students may wish to get fresh new teaching from day one?
My past posting if you are interested in reading?
