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

A seminar hosted at Gateway Technical College gave area high school instructors the training to become Snap-on certified technicians, 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 July 15 session, held at Gateway’s Horizon Center for Transportation Technology in Kenosha, provided nationally certified instruction on the Snap-on MODIS integrated diagnostic system scanner and lab scope.

Gateway donated an updated 2016 MODIS tool 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 high schools participated:

  • Bradford (Kenosha Unified School District)
  • Case (Racine Unified School District)
  • Wilmot Unified
  • Lake Geneva Badger (Lake Geneva Area Schools)
  • Whitewater (Whitewater Unified School District)
  • Waterford Unified
  • Union Grove
  • Central High School (West Allis-West Milwaukee School District).

This opportunity was made possible by the strong partnership Gateway has created with Snap-on Incorporated though NC3-National Coalition of Certification Centers.
