Skills Florida Region 6 Competition at Manatee Tech Bradenton, Florida
Cody Winegard – Matt Olsen – Arek Mylnarski
Suncoast Technical College – Precision and CNC Machining program swept the region 6 Skills Florida CNC Milling competition for the second year in a row. We pride our selves on current modern training especially in the CNC machining arena. We are past the halfway point with our Class of 2017 – our 4th class since a retooling of the machining program. Our goal to produce 100 machinist in 5 years – we are on track.
The older Haas VF-E is now at Manatee Tech in Bradenton where the competition was held and is still running. It used to be a machine at the old SCTI facility in 2005. I also saw my old mentor from Manatee Tech – Dave Grenier who was a judge for Skills. Dave is now retired but I had worked at MTC in 2007 as a part time instructor under Dave. So I blame Dave for getting me started in teaching. We all had a laugh.
Back at Suncoast Tech we are hard at work pumping out projects and learning new skills
Well now we are getting ready for State Skills and Job Internships
