CLEVELAND, WI –
CLEVELAND - Lee Sleger, Machine Tool/CNC Instructor at Lakeshore Technical College, was one of 15 instructors nationwide who earned certification in Starrett Precision Measuring during a July training session in Kenosha. Sleger is now able to help LTC students earn an industry recognized credential which will be part of the Machine Tool/CNC Program at LTC.
"Students benefit by earning an industry recognized credential in addition to their college certificate, technical diploma or degree," said Sleger. "It gives them an advantage in the hiring process. Businesses benefit because job applicants with these credentials have a third-party validation of their skills to add to their college degree."

NC3, National Coalition of Certification Centers, is a network of education providers and corporations that supports, advances and validates new and emerging technology.
