KTC hosts Woodworking Boot Camp

Wood technology professionals from across the nation are Pittsburg State this week for the second Woodworking Boot Camp session. The week-long event takes place June 1-5 at the Kansas Technology Center.

Created by Pitt State wood technology faculty Doug Hague and Charlie Phillips, the Boot Camp Session is a comprehensive wood processing overview geared toward supply-side companies in the wood industry who wish to further educate their workforce. It is conducted in coordination with the Woodworking Machinery Industry Association (WMIA) and the Wood Technology Industry Institute (WTII).

Designed for sales professionals, sales managers, product managers and executives, the course aims to broaden the understanding of secondary wood manufacturing companies.

“We are covering many different areas of manufacturing from CAD/CAM design through CNC to veneering, cabinetry, woods, tooling, millwork, and the list goes on,” Hague said. "So these folks who typically deal in selling the equipment will have a general overview of exactly what these machines can do."

The first Boot Camp Session at Pitt State took place in January. The June session was added due to popular demand.

“We were very pleased with how the first Boot Camp went, and we’re excited to host another session,” Phillips said.
