Michelle Chretien in Sheridan Curiosities 2019

Representing CAMDT again, Michelle Chretien’s work as CAMDT’s Director was the focus for a recent article on the Sheridan Curiosities blog. Michelle is an expert on everything CAMDT, and shares the details about everything from new tech equipment, diversity in the field and the applied research projects coming out of CAMDT. Michelle plays a key role in matching students with real-world industry partnerships, where students practice their skills and get ready for the workforce. Thanks Michelle for bringing light to all the amazing work that CAMDT does!

IMM student secures spot in WorldSkills Competition

Industrial Millwright Mechanic Apprenticeship student Jake Doan has made history by being the first Sheridan student to make it to the WorldSkills Competition in Russia, as part of Team Canada. Jake competed in the 2019 Skills Canada Competition in Halifax at the end of May and came out on top as the successful competitor who is now moving onto WorldSkills.

Jake will compete in the bi-annual skills competition this August in Kazan, Russia. The team of faculty who are supporting him include Brian Vintinner, Craig Brazil, Dave Hillman and Lawrence Hamilton. Good luck, Jake!

2019 Caledon Tech Fair

As part of the Caledon Day Festival, Sheridan joined food, craft, music and other tech vendors at the Caledon Tech Fair to display some of CAMDT’s best tech among the community. Families, children and former Sheridan grads had the chance to inquire about our programs and explore CAMDT’s different printing capabilities along with the Makerbot and YUMI the collaborative robot. Thanks to everyone who visited the Sheridan booth!
