Abstract
The demand for precision and efficiency is changing the way manufacturers from an array of industries are utilizing photonic and electro-optical technologies. This new demand has created a need for more specially trained operators than our post-secondary programs can supply. An over looked resource for solving industries personnel problems is the local tech prep high school. These programs already have (1) life long learning, (2) making technology accessible, and (3) transition from school to work as goals. They have 75% of the needed equipment in their electronic, computer, and technology labs. Add the missing laser labs and you can start a Laser Electro-Optical Technician training program at the secondary level.
