GREAT PLAINS ACD RECEIVES CERTIFICATE OF APPRECIATION FROM FORT SILL

In recognition of its training effort in supporting Fort Sill’s Air Defense, a certificate of appreciation was formally presented to Mike Ferguson-Adult Career Development (ACD) Coordinator, John Noel-ACD Director, and Karen Bailey-Deputy Superintendent September 14th. Making the presentation was Chief Warrant Officer 3 David Hemingway and Command Sergeant Major Giancarlo Macri. CW3 Hemingway is the instructor of the Warrant Officer Basic Course and Macri is the Command Sergeant Major for the 2-6 Air Defense Artillery Battalion at Fort Sill. Friday marked the final day of a five-day Net+ Prep training course. This is the first time the training has been conducted on our campus. Great Plains Technology Center has provided CompTIA National Certification Training in A+, Net+, and Sec+ courses to the Air Defense for the last couple of years. Certification testing is also conducted at Great Plains. Furthermore, Great Plains is in the process of developing a pilot IT Fundamentals program that will benefit AIT students who are a part of Air Defense as well. The pilot program will start in October.
