LTC plans concealed carry course
Lakeshore Technical College is offering a firearm safety for concealed carry weapons class from 8 a.m. until noon on Oct. 15 in the Public Safety Building of Lakeshore Technical College.
The class meets the state’s education requirements for students to acquire a Wisconsin CCW License/Permit. The course will provide participants with an overview of handgun safety practices and concealed carry considerations. It is designed as a safety course, not a training course. For example, the course teaches how to identify a loaded handgun and how to safely unload it, but does not teach how to load or fire a handgun.
Participants will also learn the Wisconsin Department of Justice process for obtaining, maintaining and renewing a concealed carry permit, analyze considerations regarding the carry of a concealed weapon and discuss the legal implications of carrying a concealed weapon.
The instructor, Jason Wilterdink, has 15 years of experience as a law enforcement officer. In addition to that experience he is currently a full-time instructor at LTC, a master instructor in use of force, and certified by several organizations as a firearms instructor and has served as an instructor in self-defense, training, safety, security, health, wellness and fitness.
He also served in an international police mission for the United Nations where he served in Liberia-West Africa as the team leader for the crowd control team and lead instructor for physical security, operational security and civil unrest in accordance with UN Security Council resolution 1509.
The cost is $85 and the class number is 64219. To register with a credit card call 1-888-468-6582, Extension 1366. For more information visit www.gotoltc.edu/seminars, call 920-693-1167 or email email@example.com.

LTC to offer ISO 9001 update sessions
Lakeshore Technical College is offering training sessions in September, October and November related to changes in ISO 9001.
ISO 9001 underwent a major revision that was released in September 2015. The revisions include continued adherence to the requirements of the current standard, but with a complete change in structure numbering and terminology, a new emphasis on risk management and the process approach, increased management involvement requiring a tie between company strategy and the goals of the quality management system, and greater requirements for outsourced processes.
ISO registered organizations that begin to address these changes now will have an opportunity to make an easy transition, ahead of the competition. Organizations that are not yet ISO registered will gain an understanding of what will be required so systems can be set up properly from the beginning.
The first session will be held 8 a.m. until noon on Sept. 23 and will cover an overview of the changes and its effects on your company, the timeline from the ISO Technical Committee, tips for implementation and risk management. The second session will be held 8 a.m. until noon on Sept. 30 and will cover the process approach and tools for organizing processes and identifying, analyzing, evaluating, prioritizing, monitoring and measuring risk.
It is highly recommended that company leadership who are involved in the Management Review process attend the first class. Quality management system implementation teams and internal auditors should attend both classes. Each session is $199 and both are held at LTC’s Cleveland Campus in the Sheboygan County Training Room.
The third session, Internal Auditing to ISO 9001:2015, will be held 8 a.m. until noon on Oct. 14 and Oct. 28 and Nov. 11. Companies who train their internal auditors to the new requirements of the 2015 standard will be able to utilize their internal auditors and their internal audit process to identify changes that need to be made in the quality management system. This enables the organization to more effectively implement those changes on an ongoing basis during the company’s transition to ISO 9001:2015.
This session is recommended for Quality management system implementation teams and internal auditors. Participants who complete all three sessions in this seminar will receive an Internal Auditor Certificate. This provides documentation of training for registrars and customers of the company.
This session is $375 and will be held at LTC’s Cleveland Campus in the Sheboygan County Training Room.
To register with a credit card call 1-888-468-6582, Extension 1366. For more information visit www.gotoltc.edu/seminars, call 920-693-1167 or email email@example.com. The class number for the first session is 65358, for the second session is 65360 and for the third session is 65363.
