Enterprise Desktop and Mobile Support Technology/Applied Cybersecurity

Over the last couple of weeks, two of our students had the opportunity to job shadow and assist at Advent Health in Tavares. Students assisted technicians with organizing equipment and some basic networking. The arrangement with Advent Health has been a great and “eye opening” experience for our students.

Additionally, two students successfully pass the first part of their CompTIA A+ exam and one student successfully obtained is CompTIA Network+ exam!

CNC Production Specialist

Instructor Chris McMahon worked with the students machining parts on the new Chevalier mill. The Mazak lathe is set up, tested and running now. The students made a prototype part out of aluminum for the NASA project.  Material and purchased items have come in for the school hammer project so we will be making those soon.  Both day and night students have access to the student version of SolidWorks now so they have the ability to use SolidWorks at home. The magnetic chuck came in for the surface grinder.  Hopefully we’ll have that installed next week. 

On the Mazak we are making a prototype part for NASA. We will meet with our project manager on Tuesday this coming week.
