WKCTC Skilled Craft Training Center recognized

Staff report

Five years after enrolling its first 11 students, West Kentucky Community & Technical College's Skilled Craft Training Center  was recognized as Mayfield's Industry of the Month.

Since opening in 2009, the center's total enrollment has grown to more than 4,000.

Mayfield Mayor Teresa Cantrell presented a sign and certificate to Stephanie Milliken, WKCTC dean of applied technologies, during the Monday night Mayfield City Commission meeting.

"I do hereby express the appreciation of the administration of the city of Mayfield for your continued commitment for doing business in Mayfield and Graves County," she said.

The Skilled Craft Training Center in Hickory, an extension campus of WKCTC, provides academic programs in automotive, welding, and heating and air technology; nurse assisting; and adult agriculture.

The center, which is also home to the Graves County Adult Learning Center, also provides general education classes as needed.

Among the center's achievements, the HVAC Program has pioneered advanced certification in geothermal and solar power with an Energy Audit Simulator. The center's welding lab has been expanded to a two instructor program capable of offering all courses that lead to a welding certification and diploma. The Automotive Program was recently accredited by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation for offering an environment of instructional excellence.
