Central Lakes College
Train the Trainer Workshop: Supporting Excellence in Ag and Technical Education
#: TRAIN   ID:    Section: 02  

Specifically designed for Ag and Tech-Ed teachers, this three-day workshop will include training to support instructors in teaching skills to secondary students in the areas of Small Gas Engines, Drone Technology, and Welding. Attendees will receive training from college faculty/subject matter experts and hands-on experience with equipment needed to teach secondary students. This workshop will hopefully compliment other MDE and MAAE workshops! Training is designed to meet attendees at their skill level and create long-lasting professional relationships with colleagues and subject matter experts.  Whether you’re an experienced teacher just looking for continuing education, a new teacher nervous about your skill level or knowledge, or simply curious about starting a small gas engines/drones/welding experience for students at your school, this workshop is for you! 

Attendees will receive:

  • 24 Continuing Education Credits (CEU): Clock hour certificates available upon completion of the workshop.
  • Access to classroom “tool kits,” including guided activities and coursework for teachers and students alike to further explore and experience Small Gas Engines, Drone Technology, and Welding. 
  • A small gas engine to use during the workshop and take with them afterward
  • Career exploration resources for students
  • Ongoing invitation to communicate with trainers throughout the school year
Lunch and snacks will be provided each day.
Participants should check with your school secondary Perkins coordinators for financial assistance.

THIS PROJECT IS A COLLABORATION OF THE FOLLOWING ORGANIZATIONS: M-State Community and Technical College, Northland Community and Technical College, M-State Workforce Development Solutions, Lakes Country Service Cooperative, and Minnesota State Centers of Excellence in Advanced Manufacturing, Agriculture, and Transportation.
