Jay Viernes is a graduate of the Electronics (ET) and Electromechanical (EM) Technician programs and is currently enrolled in the Robotics Technician program. Jay initially enrolled in the EM program as a way to upgrade his skills and increase his job prospects. “….I operate cranes and forklifts but wanted to better understand how the machines worked …. taking these programs gives me more opportunities.”
In addition Jay found the simulation software particularly beneficial in helping understand the program material, “I liked working on the simulation labs, it was like being in a real lab but better because I could do labs over and over again but not worry about breaking anything. The program was set up in a way that made it easy to use’.
