October Externship a HUGE Success!

The Coloma training center hosted close to 300 students and educators on October 18th for the second Student & Educator Externship. 16 school districts attended the event and had an opportunity to tour the training center, test their skill on simulators and mini-excavators, learn about the Pre-Apprenticeship program and hear first hand from employers and apprentices about the exciting career path as an Operating Engineer.

A special thank you to the apprentices, Boldt, Michels Corporation and Walbec Group for participating on the apprentice/employer panel.

“Just a quick thanks for inviting Tomah High School students to your externship day held on Oct. 18. The tour of the state-of-the-art training center, overview of the Destinations Career Academy Pre-Apprenticeship Program and getting to experience and operate real-live equipment was simply awesome. Students and teachers alike – we sure enjoyed our short time with you. You opened up a huge career window for many of our students.”
