When a huge tornado struck Moore, Oklahoma, two GE wind turbine technicians trained in personnel rescue and resuscitation raced north to help. “We were trained to help,” they say. The two kept searching through the rubble until the next afternoon, when they collapsed in the command post for a few hours of sleep. In the evening on May 21 they returned to their team and continued clearing the neighborhood for another day. They left Moore when the Oklahoma National Guard took over.
GRC researcher Trifon Laskaris holds 200 patents that helped advance brain surgery and revolutionize medical imaging. He started out as a curious six-year-old, fixing his mother’s sewing machine.
Daniel Brewer is a 32 year-old naval veteran who recently completed the inaugural class of the Get Skills to Work program at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College. He is now employed at GE Aviation. “Led by GE, along with partners such as Alcoa and Lockheed Martin, the new Get Skills to Work (GSTW) program convenes manufacturers and educators to prepare and place veterans in long-term careers in advanced manufacturing,” he said. “Thirty-five military veterans recently completed the GSTW training program. I was one of them.”
Dan Brewer joined GE Aviation after a five year stint in the United States Navy. In March he completed the Get Skills to Work training program in Cincinnati. Just in time for Memorial Day, the program added 190 new manufacturers, including many small and medium-sized businesses. The program’s goal is to train and match with jobs 100,000 veterans by 2015.
