NMTCC students compete in national event

Over the summer, two North Montco Technical Career Center (NMTCC) students had the opportunity to compete at the national level SkillsUSA competition held in Kansas City, Missouri. More than 5,600 outstanding career and technical education students — all state contest winners — competed hands-on in 94 different trade, technical and leadership fields. During the competition, students worked against the clock and each other, proving their expertise in various occupations including: computer-aided drafting, computer maintenance, electronics and medical assisting.
Contests are run with the help of industry, trade associations, and labor organizations, and test competencies are set by industry.
After winning first place in the state level competition, Robert Greisemer competed against students from across the country in the Computer Maintenance Technology competition. Robert is currently completing his 12th grade in the Internet Technologies program at NMTCC.
Brendon Miller competed against students from across the country in the Technical Drafting competition. Brendon’s hard work was rewarded when he earned 4th place in the nation. He is continuing to pursue his interest in the drafting field and is currently working at Aerotech Inc, a company that designs helicopter parts.
