Train-the-trainer event provides area high school teachers with technically advanced equipment training

May 10, 2017

A seminar hosted at Gateway Technical College gave area high school instructors the training on Snap-on torque wrenches, which will help them provide training to their students to successfully enter their chosen career or college program.

The workshop is called a "train-the-trainer" event because college instructors train high school teachers to better train their students. The session, held at Gateway’s Horizon Center for Transportation Technology in Kenosha, provided nationally certified instruction on Snap-on torque wrenches.

Two torque tools were then donated to each of the schools with staff members participating in the workshop so the technical knowledge gained can be used immediately in the classroom.
Teachers from the following teachers and high schools participated: 

  • Charlene Smith, A.J. Mueller; Tremper (Kenosha Unified School District)
  • Matt Schultz, Eric Sutkay; Lakeview Technology Academy (Kenosha Unified School District)
  • Jon Adams, Indian Trail (Kenosha Unified School District)
  • Eric Andersen, Westosha Central High School
  • Jerry Kobringer, Park (Racine Unified School District)
  • Jeff Kehoe, Wilmot Unified
  • Tom Sheeley, Lake Geneva Badger (Lake Geneva Area Schools)
  • Mike Wintz, Whitewater (Whitewater Unified School District
  • Aaron Troxell, Waterford Unified
  • Nick Baldwin, Union Grove
  • Carl Bjorge, Elkhorn Area High School
  • Michael Rick, Delavan-Darien High School
  • Jack Hart, East Troy High School
  • Matt Kerhin, Central High School (West Allis-West Milwaukee School District).

The course was made possible through a college President’s Innovation Grant received by Gateway Automotive Technology instructor and NC3 coordinator Matt Janisin.
