The course, which combines 64 hours of classroom instruction, 48 hours of online training and 196 hours of a clinical rotation, can be accessed by students from all over the country via Interactive TV (ITV) technologies. Currently, students who have enrolled in the program have attended HTC from North Dakota, Washington, Missouri, New Jersey, Maine, Idaho and even Canada. After they graduate, students will have a key role in local communities as they create new strategies to provide critical health care to rural and under served populations. Locally, ten graduates from the program are working for North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale, Minnesota. page 27

What’s NEW at CTS?

Retooled M-Powered Program! The M-Powered program is completing a 3-year grant, in September 2013, funded by the US-DOL. The program enrolled 389 students. M-Powered has 9 years of success and will continue in the fall 2013 semester. There are two CNC options: FullTime and Part-Time. In the fulltime option, students will have the opportunity to earn 18 credits and industry credentials, during the fall semester. In the part-time option, students will also earn 18 credits and industry credentials but over 3 semesters. This option is 2 nights per week, making balancing life more achievable and is perfect for those students who are employed. Besides the technical education and training, M-Powered includes wrap-around services. These services include soft skills such as resume writing, interviewing, leadership and job retention skills. These critical skills are becoming more important to employers. Each student will have an employment counselor, someone to help overcome employment and educational barriers through counseling and identifying available community resources. These wraparound services, along with the technical education, develop a well-rounded, employable individual. For more information contact Rich Kelly @ 763.488.2728 or rich.kelly@hennepintech.edu.

Pilot/Escort Certification update Hennepin Technical College has offered the new pilot/escort driver certification training since spring 2012. Currently, this is a Minnesota-specific course, although anyone escorting an oversize load into Minnesota from another state or Canada will have to be certified. To date, 71 students have taken the course successfully. Pilot/escort drivers that want to continue to do business in Minnesota must become trained and certified by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety by January 2, 2014. Peace officers performing pilot/escort duties will now also be required to have pilot/escort training. page 46

Motivating Your Team and Yourself

NEW!

NEW!

BUSINESS & MANAGEMENT

Communication & Customer Service What was the last job that motivated you to perform at your best? Was it the job that paid the most? Was it the job where you were most afraid of your boss? According to the latest research, these financial and fear-based incentives do not truly motivate us in the long term. So how do you maximize energy, effort, and excitement without causing burn out? This course will examine some of the latest psychological and educational research on motivation, providing practical strategies to help you motivate yourself and others to find purpose, mastery and autonomy in whatever work you do. F, October 25, 9 am – 12 pm Brooklyn Park, McGinley-Myers $79, 1 session, #3392

Storytelling Strategies at Work Would you like to learn how to communicate more effectively with employers, employees, students, customers, or audiences? The most powerful communicators aren’t the people with the best facts and figures, or even the best ideas. They are the people who can tell the best stories about their ideas. In this course, you will examine the storytelling strategies of a broad range of thinkers, from Abraham Lincoln to Steve Jobs, and learn how to apply those strategies in job interviews, meetings, classrooms, and presentations, connecting to your audience and bringing your own ideas to life. F, November 8, 9 am – 12 pm Brooklyn Park, McGinley-Myers $79, 1 session, #3393

Meet Robert McGinley-Myers Robert McGinley-Myers is a full time faculty member with the Hennepin Technical College English Department. He has an MFA in Creative writing from the University of Minnesota, and spent Ƅve years writing for and then producing Garrison Keillor’s public radio program. “I have come to teaching after six years working as a journalist for Minnesota Public Radio, Ƅrst writing and producing for a show called The Writer’s Almanac, and then for a show called Speaking of Faith. I also reported a series of stories for a show called Weekend America, which also ran on Public radio.” ”As an English instructor, I focus on writing as both a means of communication and critical thinking. I believe that learning to write clearly, coherently, and compellingly is hard work, but I try to balance that hard work by making the writing assignments fun.”

“Whenever possible, I encourage students to write about themselves. I have found that students tend to care more about a piece of writing when they are writing about something that matters to them, and they try harder to express their ideas effectively when they are expressing ideas about their own life experiences.” Additional Robert McGinley-Myers courses: Creating Powerful Presentations, The iPad at Work, and The MAC at Work can be found on page 14.

Study released estimates the economic impact that Hennepin Technical College has on the regional economy to be $288 million per year.

Based on the Twin Cities metro economy of $190.7 billion, this means that for every $1,000 produced in the Twin Cities metro area, $15 are directly or indirectly related to Hennepin Tech. The direct impact of the college in 2011 was $169 million, while the indirect impact in other industries was $119 million. Similarly, during 2011 the college and its students generated an estimated 2816 jobs in the Twin Cities. These jobs included an estimated 1,984 direct jobs and 832 additional indirect jobs created by vendors, contractors, and businesses supplying inputs to the college and its students. The study was conducted by Wilder Research, a nationally recognized source of data used by state and local planners, policy makers, and service providers. The Wilder analysis, which was prepared for the Minnesota State Colleges and University system, explains that HTC impacts the local economy in three ways: • Direct spending by the college itself, including funds spent for construction projects, wages and salaries, contracted services, and supplies and repairs. • Spending by students, many of whom are residents of the area. • Labor markets impact, including the employment of local residents, job creation as a result of college, student spending, students working part-time while going to school, and students staying in the local area after completing their studies.

www.hennepintech.edu/cts

Jose Diaz, research scientist for Wilder, said, “This economic impact research provides a statistically valid measurement of the significance of an organization’s activities on the regional economy. Policy makers and community leaders can use the data to inform their decisions. Hennepin Technical College clearly has a significant impact on the regional economy.”

The study also concluded that Hennepin Technical College generates approximately $17 million in tax revenue for state and local government.

“In addition to focusing on the success of our students, Hennepin Technical College plays a vital role in supporting our state and regional economy,” said Hennepin Technical College President Cecilia Cervantes. “Our operations and the economic activity generated by our faculty, staff, and students touch virtually every corner of our regional economy and support local business and industry.” The study further estimated the value of the increase in productivity that 663 associate degrees were awarded by Hennepin Technical College in 2011 will yield throughout the careers of the graduates.

Assuming a 40-year work life, the education received by these graduates will yield additional state income of $62.1 million. “Hennepin Technical College makes a long-term contribution to the regional economy with every graduating class because the productivity improvement from higher education lasts for the worker’s entire career” said Diaz. On a statewide level, the Wilder study shows the seven state universities and 24 community and technical colleges that are part of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities System: • Generate an annual economic impact of $8.3 billion (direct impact of $5 billion and indirect impact in other industries of $3.3 billion). • Represent a return of $13.53 for each $1 of state appropriation. • Generate an estimated 80,856 jobs in the state (56,876 direct jobs and 23,979 additional indirect jobs created by vendors, contractors and businesses supplying inputs to our colleges and universities and their students). • Generate approximately $490 million in tax revenues for Minnesota state and local governments. In addition to the impact outlined above, the enhanced productivity of MnSCU graduates across the state is equivalent to $4.7 billion of future value created each year.

Powerpoint has a reputation for boring audiences. Yet some of the most powerful and compelling modern presentations (just watch any Ted Talk) are actually Powerpoints in disguise. What techniques are these presenters using to keep their audiences engaged in complex and persuasive ideas?

Robert McGinley-Myers is a full time faculty member with the Hennepin technical College English Department. He has an MFA in Creative writing from the University of Minnesota, and spent Ƅve years writing for and then producing Garrison Keillor’s public radio program. “I have come to teaching after six years working as a journalist for Minnesota Public Radio, Ƅrst writing and producing for a show called The Writer’s Almanac, and then for a show called Speaking of Faith. I also reported a series of stories for a show called Weekend America, which also ran on Public radio.” ”As an English instructor, I focus on writing as both a means of communication and critical thinking. I believe that learning to write clearly, coherently, and compellingly is hard work, but I try to balance that hard work by making the writing assignments fun.”

“Whenever possible, I encourage students to write about themselves. I have found that students tend to care more about a piece of writing when they are writing about something that matters to them, and they try harder to express their ideas effectively when they are expressing ideas about their own life experiences.”

Motivating Your Team and Yourself What was the last job that motivated you to perform at your best? Was it the job that paid the most? Was it the job where you were most afraid of your boss? According to the latest research, these financial and fear-based incentives do not truly motivate us in the long term. So how do you maximize energy, effort, and excitement without causing burn out? This course will examine some of the latest psychological and educational research on motivation, providing practical strategies to help you motivate yourself and others to find purpose, mastery and autonomy in whatever work you do.

New career path for paramedics Hennepin Technical College (HTC) is the only college to offer Community Paramedic training as an academic Certificate program®. Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton signed into law the Community Paramedics Bill creating a new certification for emergency medical technicians – Emergency Medical Technicians-Community Paramedic (EMT-CP). The first program began in May 2011 at HTC’s Eden Prairie campus, and will expand access to health care in under served communities. Community paramedics will provide health services where access to physicians, clinics, or hospitals is difficult. Rural Minnesota, with its large population of elderly citizens and a critical shortage of health care professionals, will be one place where community paramedics can help the most.

www.hennepintech.edu/cts

Community paramedics are also trained to monitor and provide certain treatment to patients with chronic diseases and perform minor medical procedures in the patients’ home. For example, when responding to emergencies involving autistic patients, treating minor injuries in the patient’s home eliminates the added stress of transporting them to the emergency room. Experienced paramedics who enroll in the program will complete 64 hours of classroom and 48 hours of online training at HTC’s Eden Prairie campus, as well as 196 hours of clinical training at various Twin Cities hospitals, earning 12 college credits.

For more information please contact Kai Hjermstad at 952.995.1313 or kai.hjermstad@hennepintech.edu

“This innovative new program is a real win-win for all parties involved because it addresses the increased financial pressure in the health care system, the shortage of and uneven distribution of health care professionals in rural areas, an aging society, increased health care demands and the need to provide another career track for experienced paramedics.”

General Mills Food Scientists get a Taste of Culinary Arts at Hennepin Technical College

34

As for class content, Eisenreich worked with Griebel and HTC’s Suzanne Ciebiera, training and development director of Customized Training Services, to develop a program that would fit the needs of the food scientists. Currently, there are four courses: 101 focuses on fundamentals such as knife skills and basic cooking technique; 201 builds on those skills and advances to work on building meals and flavors; 301 explores the culinary fundamentals of Mexican and Italian cuisines; and 401 is devoted to the fundamentals of baking, highlighted by artisan breads, cakes, cookies, and pies. With classes of just 12 to 15 individuals, there’s plenty of time to discuss what the students are learning. Food brings people together. And when those people are instructors from the Hennepin Technical College culinary arts program and food scientists who are product developers at General Mills, it leads to an energizing exchange of knowledge about food. This blending of food science and culinary arts began in 2011, when General Mills sought an opportunity for its food scientists to gain handson cooking experience that would enhance the development process. Now the scientists spend time in the Hennepin Technical College kitchens as they chop, sauté, stir, bake, and taste their way through a variety of recipes with HTC instructor Dave Eisenreich, who has taught at HTC since 1998.

“Building the scientists’ culinary skills improves the quality of our products,” says Jonathan Griebel, senior scientist at General Mills. He notes that the classes have helped product developers refine their definitions of the tastes they want to produce. “Instead of telling their supplier they want onion flavor, they now might specify sautéed onions,” explains Griebel.

952.995.1330


“I love working with chefs,” says Griebel, describing what he enjoys about the classes at HTC. Prior to completing his training in food science and joining the research and development team at General Mills, Griebel was a chef. For him, blending food science with culinary arts makes for a great combination, especially with classes that provide product developers with fresh ideas about meeting consumers’ expectations. “As people watch cooking shows and travel shows, they’re becoming interested in a wider variety of flavors,” observes Griebel. To meet the challenge, General Mills provides food scientists with continuing education that keeps them inspired.

With classes that bring together people from General Mills’ research and development team and HTC’s culinary arts program, one thing is clear: It’s all about good food.

Dave Eisenreich has 33 years hospitality experience as cook, sous chef, and chef. He continues his industry involvement as an on-call chef for two caterers and as personal chef. During his 10 years at HTC, Dave has taught many courses, among which are baking, decorative works, global cuisine, fundamentals of wine, cooking with ale and lager, bar and beverage, and human relations management. Representing Hennepin Technical College, Dave was nominated for Award of Excellence in 2006 and Chef of the Year 2008 by the American Culinary Federation, Minneapolis Chapter. Personal interests include international travel, bicycling and catering.

“Our relationship is particularly rewarding for me because those attending the sessions bring a wealth of knowledge about the food industry,” says Eisenreich. “Aside from that, they are just great people.”

It’s All in the Family at Hennepin Technical College

It’s not everyday a father and son attend a college course together, and both get certified in the same field. But that’s just what happened to Jeff Leuthardt and his son, Shenray Leuthardt, when they both attended the five-week IPC J-STD soldering certification course at Hennepin Technical College, through Customized Training Services. “I found out about the program at a Job Fair, and told my son about it because he was planning to attend HTC for Automation Robotics” recalls Jeff, who had no previous experience with soldering. With a background in prepress printing, graphic and web design, Jeff was between jobs and looking to add a new skill to his resume.

“I was talking to Joe (Fredkove), about the IPC Soldering course for my son, and I thought I should probably go myself.” Jeff’s son, Shenray Leuthardt, was attending Waconia High School at the time, and enjoyed participating in the schools Robotics’ Club. Last spring, at the advice and encouragement of his

38

Dad, they both began the five-week program together, as Shenray was finishing up his final weeks before graduating from high school. Asked whether there were any special advantages to attending the course at the same time, both father and son confirmed that assisting each other with homework, specifically the math, was beneficial.

“There was a point where we were both going over the math and I walked him (Jeff) through it and showed him a shortcut,” recalls Shenray with a smile. “My dad also reminded me about homework that needed to be done.” Shenray used his soldering skills immediately, while he was still in the Robotics’ Club at Waconia High School, re-assembling older parts into new configurations for competitions. “They have a lot of old parts, and no one else could do it.” He also knows that soldering will be a benefit when he enters the HTC Automation Robotics program this fall.

Jeff pointed out that although he’ll continue to look for a full time print and design position, he feels that with this new skill on his resume, it opens up the types of businesses he can work with. “Employers want you to understand their business, even if the position you apply for is different, they still want you to understand the industry.” He also noted that employers like to see that you have been engaged in learning, even between jobs. Damodar Ramanuj, the IPC soldering instructor, has seen other families participate in this course together. Last year there was another father/son pair, and this spring, there was even a sister/ brother enrolled at the same time. “It works to their advantage” says Ramanuj of the families, “they feed off each other’s knowledge and training because they are learning the same things. This is a family school” he grins, “just like Olive Garden – when you’re here, you’re family.”

In the classroom, each student has access to a soldering station, a soldering iron, solder, magnifying lens and wire stripper. Students get hands-on experience identifying components, learning and practicing industry standards and understanding schematics. At the end of the 5 weeks, they can take a test to become certified.

952.995.1330


“This course is beyond the regular electronics program,” notes Ramanuj” J-STD is the basic soldering certification – employers know they wouldn’t have to be trained in standards. Their entry level skills This is the only time that are better.” Shenray disagrees, “don’t When asked what a student needs carpool” he grins, “unless to be successful in this course, you want to listen to MPR.” Ramanuj explains, “ You have to be hungry for knowledge. Be curious and ask a lot of questions. You go to bed smart, and you wake up dumb - that’s how fast electronics is changing”. For Jeff and his son Shenray, they would both recommend the course. “It’s another skill to learn “ says Jeff, “and now you understand another business workflow.”

IPC J-Std Certification No experience is necessary. The 64-hour program consists of schematic reading and hands-on soldering skill development. At the end of the program, you will have the opportunity to earn the IPC J-Std Certification.

As far as advice for other families enrolled together, they both said it was a positive experience. Jeff notes, “Be prepared to learn each other’s study habits”, and “try to arrange your time to ride in the same car to save gas.”

Shenray added, “It’s something I enjoy, it’s useful, and it helps a lot including home use.” Job seekers possessing the IPC J-Std Certification can work as electronic, mechanical and medical assemblers for employers in the following industries: telecommunication, electronics, energy, manufacturing (medical device, defense, aerospace), and HVAC to name a few. According to the US-DOL , MN has one of the highest levels of employment and average salary, for soldering, in the US. According to the MN DEED, this occupation is one of the fastest growing, in MN. The estimated percent growth from 2009-2019 is 24.2%. Solderers can expect to start between $11-$14 per hour.

HTC Customized Training Set to Launch Manufacturing Project By Matt Leaf, Director of MAAC Program

TRADES & INDUSTRY

Manufacturing Assessment and Advancement Centers (MAAC) is a United States Department of Labor funded program being launched by Hennepin Technical College (HTC). This project, totaling nearly $3-million, will span four years. Over 300 students will have the opportunity to complete the program by earning a diploma (30 credits).

40

HOW IS THE MAAC ASSESSMENT AND ADVANCEMENT LEARNING PROCESS DIFFERENT?

• Experience an “inverted classroom” by learning online instead of attending lectures in person. • Practice your new skills on simulators at the nearest MAAC site before going on campus. • Train on campus during convenient “open lab time” to work on conventional equipment. • Designed from the ground up with input from premiere employers • Aimed at compressing the learning cycle for all students interested technical education MAAC locations will be set up throughout the Twin Cities for convenient access. Sites currently under consideration include Brooklyn Park and Eden Prairie campus, North Minneapolis, and the Wright Technical Center in Buffalo, Minnesota. Simulators will include virtual reality welders, desktop machining centers, and automated electronics that are used in nearly all manufacturing facilities.

WHAT INDUSTRIES WILL BE INCLUDED? Machining, welding, fluid power, and automated controls are all hot industries who are desperately searching for employees. We are developing curriculum to meet those demands.

WHO SHOULD APPLY? Veterans are a large focus of this project. They’re returning from active duty and have responsibilities to meet (Mortgages, families to support, cars to pay for, etc.), and often need specialized training to land a high paying job. We want to accommodate them by awarding college credit for the applicable training they’ve received so they don’t start at square one. Those who have been grant TAA (Trade Adjustment Assistance) status or Dislocated Workers status are also a main focus of this project. We’ve developed this model to be flexible so that no matter when attending college works best for each individual, we have a solution that matches.

Anyone who has an interest in the cutting edge manufacturing sector should also consider applying. Whether you need to update your skills or attain new ones, the MAAC program is the way to attend college with minimal disruption to your life. Counseling, financial aid, and guidance is available

MAY I RECEIVE CREDIT FOR PRIOR LEARNING EXPERIENCE? Applicants may also receive Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) that they have already completed—regardless of where it’s from. Examples of prior learning include (but are not limited to): • Military training • On-the-job training • Overseas education

Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Matt Leaf, Director of MAAC, at 952.995.1345 or matt.leaf@hennepintech.edu.

Hennepin Technical College is now Tobacco Free

A new policy banning the use of tobacco on the Eden Prairie and Brooklyn Park campuses of Hennepin Technical College went into effect July 1. Under the new policy, smoking, tobacco use and tobacco sales (including the use or sale of smokeless tobacco products and electronic cigarettes) will be prohibited on property the college owns, operates or leases. The policy applies to all students,

faculty, staff, administrators, outside contractors and the general public. Tobacco use will be allowed inside enclosed private vehicles that are parked in the college’s parking lots.

“After careful consideration, it was decided that a tobacco-free campus policy would contribute to the health and safety of students, faculty, staff and visitors,” said Cecilia Cervantes, Hennepin Technical College president. The college will become one of nearly 50 campus locations across the state that have gone smoke and tobacco free.
