Key West mechanics prepared to support the Warfighter

SE-Key_West

KEY WEST, Fla. – Public Works Department (PWD) Key West announced Feb. 6 the success of providing key maintenance support for air operations at Naval Air Station Key West. PWD mechanics Wallace Moore and David Wilkins increased capabilities on base by completing Master Tech training.

“They [Moore and Wilkins] are highly trained mechanics ready to support the Warfighter,” said PWD Production Director Roland Flowers. “They are two of less than a handful of employees at Naval Facilities Engineering Command worldwide to complete Master Tech training for civilian mechanics.” Is this accurate?
The two mechanics had to complete 14 classes which incorporated hands-on work along with class presentations and testing.

“Keeping our employees trained and up-to-date with technology is very important,” said Flowers. “Having an in-house workforce here and ready to work on any equipment that breaks down or needs maintenance is key to the Warfighter.”

“Some were very technical and in-depth, but we passed them all,” said Moore.
The coursework spanned over a two and a half year period. The coursework included topics such as preventive maintenance, chassis electrical, air brakes, ABS troubleshooting, aerial maintenance, air conditioning systems and more.

“Completing this program has greatly cut down on down-time between repairs,” claimed Flowers. “The knowledge they have gained has enabled Public Works to provide timely and professional service in helping support the fire department and the service they provide to Key West.”

“We did this so that we could better support our Fire Department and the modern equipment they have received over the last two years,” said Moore. Any other commands that they support?

Do they provide training to other mechanics?

What kind of equipment do they service? Be generic in what type and what it is used for. How are we supporting the warfighter?
