Our apprentices work through 3 steps throughout their time in the Mechatronics program at Triple Win- Level One, Level Two, and Senior Apprentices. In order to progress to the next stage, students must complete a checklist of requirements that they will work on throughout the trimester.
We start our Mechatronics One students in comprehensive training on shop safety, tool safety, and general shop competence. Mechatronics One students are enrolled in an OSHA 30 Certification course that they are to complete online before participating with heavy shop projects. In the meantime, Level Ones work on projects such as mural painting, renovation of the new space, graphic design and production. (Making stickers, patches, etc.)
Once the student receives their OSHA 30 certification, they recieve PPE (Steel Toed Boots, Pants, a flame resistant work shirt, safety glasses, and gloves) and are welcome to join the upper levels in the shop. The duties of a Level One in the shop are mainly to shadow other students and learn as much as they can! When a Level One Mechatronics student has logged 120 work hours they are invited to apply for a Level Two Mechatronics position the following Trimester (Summer, Fall, Spring)
