Former Electronics Student On Base with Tinker Air Force
Mark Hudson had worked about 30 years in Diesel Technology and had a degree from OSU-OKC. Following a leg injury, he found himself stuck at home for an extended period of time. To Mark, disability assistance was not an option. He wanted to be working. Mark was one of the first students to enroll in an online program for Electronics at Metro Tech. Although Mark did his studies from home, he was able to call or email Metro Tech’s electronic instructor, Brian Hart at any time or go to Metro Tech’s Aviation Career Campus to discuss his questions with Hart. Hudson liked that he was able to work at his own pace to complete the electronics program. While attending Metro Tech, Mark received his certification of ISCET (International Society of Certified Electronics Technicians.)
Mark Hudson now works at the Tinker Air Force Base Electronics Shop as an electronics mechanic. He mainly works on flight controls and electronics for aircraft. Hudson quickly moved up in salary which is over $50,000 a year. Hudson plans to keep his skills current so that he will always stay gainfully employed while keeping himself competitive for the job market.
