Single CVTC classes help workers upgrade skills
Curtiss Anderson was recently working on on an electrical controller training unit in December at the Mechatronics lab in Chippewa Valley Technical College’s Gateway Campus. However, Anderson is not a typical student in the Mechatronics program, which was formerly known as Industrial Mechanics. In fact, he is a member of the program’s Advisory Committee, which includes professionals in the field and helps guide the program to ensure students learn the skills they need.
“I came back as a student for the electrical maintenance and PLC (programmable logic controller) refresher, but I am learning a lot too,” said Anderson, 45, a technical operations manager at Premium Waters in Chippewa Falls.
