TCAT Elizabethton shows results with 3rd annual ‘Train the Trainer’

Published 5:50 pm Monday, May 1, 2017

To say last week was busy in the Stoney Creek community would be an understatement – at least for the faculty at Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT) Elizabethton.
The technical school hosted its third annual “Train the Trainer” program last week as a way to train many instructors from across the country in different subjects and receive NC3 (National Coalition of Certification Centers) certification.
“Elizabethton is only one of the four designated NC3 regional training centers in the country,” John Lee, NC3 certified trainer at TCAT Elizabethton, recently stated. “The program has really grown since our first year.”
Instructors worked alongside Lee and receive training from various  instruction in different courses, including:
• Automotive Scanner Diagnostics
• Mechanical and Electronic Torque
• Precision Measurement Instruments
• Greenlee Certifications
• Trane Residential
• Advanced Measuring Instruments
• Wheel Service
• Rotor Matching Master Technician
• Advanced Diagnostics
• Multimeter
• Tools at Height
• Heavy Duty Diesel Scanner Diagnostics
• Website Development
It was an eye-opening experience, according to Dan Ramirez, director of strategic marketing and development for NC3. On his flight out of the city Friday, the NC3 official commended the efforts of the instructors during the week and added that TCAT Elizabethton offered great amenities for instructors.
Along with the various training opportunities, TCAT Elizabethton also learned last week the school will partner with Greenlee, a Textron company, to provide various opportunities for students moving forward.
