Cooperative Education Spotlight- Aaron Myers
Aaron Myers, a senior from Big Spring High School, starts each school day working at USA Spares while most of his classmates are on the bus or driving to school. Aaron is working for USA Spares through the Cooperative Education program at Cumberland Perry AVTS. After 2 years of classroom and hands on training in the Precision Machine Technology program at CPAVTS, he figured the next step in his education would be on-the-job training. He now reports to the production floor each day to find a new task awaiting his arrival. His training in the PMT program helped prepare him for most tasks including blue print reading, metal identification, precision measurement practices, manual CNC lathe procedures, manual CNC milling procedures, and the operation of many cutting machines. These real world situations are difficult to duplicate in the classroom setting. Aaron has cherished this opportunity and says it has helped prepare him for any and all future endeavors. The team at USA Spares has been a great partner for helping Aaron realize his potential and pushing him towards new goals. His career path is definitely headed in the right direction!
