Anything else we should know? In 2018 I took an intradistrict course called Applied Engineering & Manufacturing at Lynnwood High School. While taking this course I learned soft skills and base industry skills. Some of these skills were learning to work collaboratively with others; practicing personal safety; understanding the importance of shop safety for myself and others; tool identification; reading and understanding engineering blueprints; accurately applying riveting and countersinking practices. In addition, I learned how to properly store and maintain every piece of equipment in the lab, shop, and classroom. While in the program, I was interviewed by the Edmonds School District to talk about my experience so far. One question the interviewer asked was, “What did you learn about yourself while taking this course?” I immediately replied back saying, “Had I not taken this class I would not have known that I was a hands-on kinda guy and that's what it's really all about, getting that hands-on experience and learning what this class offers.” The interview was filmed and has been posted on the district website. With my hard efforts I maintained a level of professionalism in the shop and classroom and I was awarded a Core Plus Certificate of Competency. In 2019 I was accepted into the Auto Body and Collision Repair course at Sno-isle Tech Skills Center. While taking this course, I learned many new skills and techniques and was able to apply previous transferable skills as well. I learned the importance of good communication, effectively working as a team, critical thinking and problem solving, and had the opportunity to demonstrate leadership skills in the areas of shop and classroom environment while guiding peers. I learned how to maintain and properly handle general hand and power tools, practiced entry-level welding, demonstrated first aid procedures for potential occupational injuries, and consistently met the standards that are aligned with the Washington state employability standards. With my continued hard work and professionalism I was awarded several certificates including CPR & First Aid, SP/2 Certifications, Student of the Quarter award in fall 2019, and a certificate of achievement in Auto Body and Collision Repair.
